More likely used as cuttings, like willow or poplar, since the roots would be too intertwined to dig out a single one and transplant it.

That might solve the wind problem too - while the trees would be vulnerable to wind if they grew alone, the intertangled roots would help support a clump of trees.

Californian Redwood grows comparitively quickly here, and I notice that it looks happier growing in a clump than singly or in a row or hedge.
