Dawn Redwood

 (Metasequoia glyptostroboides)

A fast-growing deciduous tree and a native of China.

It grows to at least 200 feet.

The only example found on Hampstead Heath is situated behind The Viaduct Pond.

It is normally grown as an ornamental plant and the Heath's example may well have originated from a nearby private garden.

The pictures here were taken by Thomas Bastien.
