Dawn Redwood

These two dawn redwood (Metasequoia glyptostroboides) trees have been planted at Martell Forest. The first picture shows the leaves. They are much like bald cypress leaves, but a bit bigger and are arranged in opposite fashion on the twigs. Like the bald cypress, this coniferous tree also loses its leaves in the winter.

Here is a scene to help you find the dawn redwood trees at Martell Forest. The dawn redwood trees are just outside the picture to the left, you can see some of the branches left of the bench. There are several bald cypress (Taxodium distichum) trees planted on the edge of this pond. The small tree at the edge of the pond that is visible in the picture is a black walnut tree. Pictures taken August 22, 2009.
