Wargrave - Bayliss Road (Berkshire)
|Thanks to Marsha for these photographs taken of a Giant Redwood (Sequoiadendron giganteum) in Wargrave during a visit to Berkshire in 2009 in a very wet November.
Marsha emailed to say "Here are pictures of a tree in Wargrave - I cannot find a really sunny day. We are visiting from the U.S. and we were driving through a housing estate in Wargrave and we saw a Giant Redwood. This was very impressive to us because we have them in the U.S. and always thought they only grew in the Pacific northwest. This is a particularly pretty tree on an estate lot. It measures 6.16 metres circumference at 1.5 metres and 32 metres tall using the stick and thumb method. If the house is around long enough the tree will over grow it! We have been to Yosemite several times and to the Sequoia National Park. They are spectacular trees."
A few days later Marsha wrote to say, "We went to Wellingtonia Avenue today - it was beautiful and very spectacular!"
I am pleased you got to see Wellingtonia Avenue, I'm sorry about the weather but I can say that it doesn't always rain in England!
I hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in the U.K.
