I've seen them look more sparse sometimes around here when they're grown too far inland and have to deal with too much summer heat. I'm not sure what the summers are like in that part of NZ but that would be a possibility.

They can also be sparse in coastal or mountain exposure, anywhere subjected to frequent strong wind.

Our winters are very mild in comparison to your part of the world ... -6 degrees at coldest in Hamilton, and definitely no snow in this part of the North Island of NZ where this photo was taken. Sorry, growin, we can't produce them like you do over there!!
Thank you all for your interest and great knowledge.

There's some very good specimens at Rotorua, if you want to see how well Sequoia sempervirens grows where it has conditions it likes.

Sorry, nope, definitely Sequoia sempervirens.
