|Botanical Name||Cupressus macrocarpa|

|Notes||A classic example of development overtaking mature trees. Planted about 100 years ago in the large garden of the Fortfield Hotel. The hotel was burned down and demolished some years ago and has been replaced by several blocks of apartments. The magnificent Monterey Cypress now has regular pruning to prevent interference with the buildings. This could have been avoided if the developers had chosen to give it space.|
