Giant Redwood
North Street, Midhurst
Giant Redwood [Sequoiadendron giganteum]
[opposite bus station]

These trees have been reported at over 300 ft in height and 29 ft in diameter. The oldest known Giant Sequoia is 3,200 years old. Imagine this on North Street in a hundred years time! It will probably become the most recognised landmark.
Fossil evidence, shows that the enormous Giant Redwood trees were growing in Britain millions of years ago. The Dartmoor National Park Authority states that between 65 and 2 million years ago, during the Tertiary period, Dartmoor was nearer the Equator and although the climate varied it was predominantly hot and wet. Perhaps the Giant Redwood is an ideal tree to re-introduce as we are told that our climate is beginning to return to these types of conditions.
