Metasequoia glyptostroboides

Dawn Redwood

Dawn Redwood is a large Chinese tree, a deciduous conifer, somewhat like Baldcypress (Taxodium). It was first known only from the fossil record but was found growing wild in a remote area of China in 1941. Some of the first Metasequoia planted in the United States are on the campus of the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. These trees, now over 100 feet tall, were grown from seed collected in China and sent back in 1948 from Belgium by the late Dr. J.T. Baldwin. Now widely planted, it should be given space and a site with reasonably good soil.
