Alone in the woods

I was amazed by the sheer size of the Redwood Forest near Warburton in country Victoria. I took a series of shots with this being my favourite. I am very much looking forward to returning to this amazing location and explore it more in the near future. ‘The Californian Redwood trees were planted by the Board of Works about 1930 following clearing of the original eucalypt forest. The plantations were selected for experimental purposes as part of the Board’s hydrology research program.The Californian Redwood trees are significant because of the history and extent of the plantation. There are over 1476 trees ranging from 20 metres to the tallest being 55 metres. They are in good condition and as they are planted in a grid are aesthetically pleasing to the eye. They are a contribution to the landscape by the sheer number of trees as well as containing possibly the tallest and most interesting Sequoia sempervirens in Victoria.’ (Victorian Heritage Database)
