Giant Redwood - September 2021
"This fellow is behind the Old Gym and is very skinny."

Giant Redwood - October 2021
"This Wellingtonia stands by the University Ring Roads."
Thanks to George for sending these photographs of two young Wellingtonia in Edgbaston. An excellent couple of finds and they both look in superb condition. It's relatively rare to encounter Giant Redwoods of this young age, although the Victorians planted many thousands, far fewer have been planted in more recent decades.
