There are over 500,000 Redwoods in the UK, and according to a recent report by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and University College London (UCL) they are thriving despite only being introduced around 160 years ago.

The tallest in the UK is currently 54.87m or 180 feet, the tallest in California is 90m or 295 feet, however the Trees are native to California and as such have had a longer period in which to grow when compared to the UK trees, however the UK trees are growing and developing well according to experts.

Giant sequoias are a rapidly growing feature of the UK landscape - UCL (13th March 2024)
