NotesOriginally from China, this is the smallest of the Redwoods but will still grow to 60m (200 ft). With fossil records back 150 million years, scientists believed it was extinct until a plantation was found in a remote part of China in 1946.  It is one of the few conifers that is deciduous.  More about Dawn Redwoods here.info
