Hmm! No such tree as Metasquoia sempervirens..

Think you mean Metasequoia glyptostroboides or Dawn redwood...and yes that is what it is.

It can grow pretty big.

The bark is usually beautifully corrugated /fluted as my pic.
Yet another of my favourite trees.
Incidentally it is a conifer...but not evergreen. It looses all its leaves in winter.
But before that goes a lovely colour in the autumn.

Another name for it is Water Larch - I wonder if it is to do with it being deciduous like the larch?

Did cross my mind it was a REDwood, but I thought that was a bit obvious, dur! Should have gone with the gut feeling and not tried to be clever - and wrong!

Lovely tree, very tactile.

Sue never ever heard it called Water larch.
Looked on www ...nothing there either.
It certainly wouldn't be found in wet areas.
