Metasequoia glyptostroboides, is a deciduous conifer tree that is native to China. Here's some information about Dawn Redwood:

  1. Appearance: Dawn Redwood is a tall and majestic tree that can reach heights of up to 100 feet (30 meters) or more. It has a pyramidal shape when young, but as it matures, it develops a more conical or columnar form. The leaves are feathery and needle-like, arranged in opposite pairs along the branches. In the fall, the foliage turns a beautiful reddish-brown or copper color before dropping.

  2. History: Dawn Redwood was thought to be extinct until living specimens were discovered in China in the 1940s. It is considered a "living fossil" because it is a relic species that was once widespread but is now only found in a few regions.

  3. Growth and Habitat: Dawn Redwood is a fast-growing tree that thrives in moist, well-drained soils. It prefers full sun but can tolerate some shade. It is commonly found near riverbanks and in wetland areas, as it has a high tolerance for waterlogged soils.
