Could it really be?

DAY 179 (1 OCTOBER) – Dawn redwood (Metasequoia glyptostroboides) (Farnham)

Do I hear an outcry? According to the plant identification website I use, this is a dawn redwood. But what makes that unlikely is they are endangered and only to be found in south-central China. And that’s a long way from Farnham Library gardens, the home of this lovely tree.

So I am stumped (pardon the pun). But whichever way it is very beautiful, especially the red tips of the leaves signalling October in.

If you know what it is, please tell me.
