I've been there and it's fascinating - as you say, Simon, the Monterey Pine is pretty awful in its tiny native range - is it the most planted tree in nthe world now ? the staple of plantation forestry right across the warm temperate zones of the world. But I'm not sure it's topography that trapped the two species - I'd always assumed it was a drying climate that cut them off - do you think thats right ?

One barrier to northward spread in N America is the Monterey Peninsula, which sticks out into the Pacific, so Monterey pines and cypresses have been stuck there and don't grow as well in their "native" habitat as the ones that escaped to Bournemouth and other more hospitable climes with human assistance.
