This tree is in fact a Giant Sequoia otherwise known as a Giant Redwood tree. So it will grow to be a very large Christmas tree in many years to come. It was planted by Haringey council along with the other young trees you see on the green.
a Giant Redwood ?! this is indigenous to North California and can grow greater that 200ft
Phenomenal trees - I lived in California for a couple of years way back and was lucky enough to experience these large trees - they are beautiful
and yes it will take many years before we see the true height - we won't physically be here (well I won't) perhaps in spirit though.
Anyways, here we are in 2016 now ! so years to come who knows.
May this tree bring happiness and joy and a smile or two with a twit-a-hoo (assuming an owl chooses to live in it) ;-)
There you - the tree is now cast in a role to play in history
