Giant Redwood Trees at the Borders of Brent
From reading Paul Wood's "London's street trees : a field guide to the urban forest", I was surprised to read that there are Giant Redwood trees near Brent, and using Googlemaps this appears to be true. They are at the corner of Fernhead Road and Kilburn Lane (actually in Westminster). Who on earth planted them, when and why I wonder?
These amazing trees can live for thousands of years and inspired the early environmentalist John Muir.
