Monumental trees along the Rhinefield Ornamental Drive in Lyndhurst

Here 12 trees are described along the Rhinefield Ornamental Drive in Lyndhurst (county of Hampshire).

These two giant sequoias can be found along the "Tall Trees Trail" along the Rhinefield Drive in the New Forest.


This vast British National Park is one of the most natural areas in Western Europe and show how the forests, which are mostly gone now, would have looked like in medieval times, although it is not a real undisturbed natural forest like in the sense of the Polish woods of Białowieża (the only remaining European forest with no to very little interference of men). For more than a thousand years, these woodlands have been grazed extensively by horses, cattle, and deer, which has produced its own peculiar habitat.
