On Worth School Speech Day the Abbot and Head Master, Stuart McPherson,  planted a tree in honour of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee next to the pinetum. The redwood is a Sequoiadendron giganteum ‘pendulum’ and is different from other sequoias in that the trunk grows in a contorted fashion, meaning that each tree finds its own particular shape and beauty.

The tree is currently just under 2 metres tall but can grow up to 15 metres.
