Four Dawn Redwoods on the north side of the Lagoon Trail covered footbridge in Farmington, Utah. The Dawn Redwood (Metasequoia Glyptostroboides) is a wonderful plant with a fascinating history. It IS a true Redwood, but unlike most other conifers, the Dawn Redwood is deciduous, shedding its soft, fernlike needles in the fall. These specimens will probably leaf out again in a few weeks, judging by the buds. These trees once covered North America and Eurasia from 100 million years ago and onward, but vanished several million years ago. It was originally discovered as a fossil and though to be extinct until scientists found a relict population in China in the 1940’s. It is a fast-growing species, adding 2-4 feet per year. Old growth specimens in China are 100-130 feet tall and 7 feet wide, but they probably haven’t reached their full potential. The remaining Dawn Redwoods in China aren’t in their ideal habitat, it’s too hot and the soil isn’t great. The true potential could be over 200 feet. This species is rarely planted in Utah, but does well when it has lots of water. It’s great for riparian zones and ponds. Unlike Giant Sequoias, they do not need well-drained soil and can even grow in standing water. I hope more are planted soon!

Edit: actually, I need to check this, maybe it's a Dawn redwood? Another find from yesterday's exploration of the UAlbany campus, a row of bald cypress trees (Taxodium distichum). This is one of relatively few deciduous conifers that grow around here, another is the golden larch (Pseudolarix amabilis), a row of which is planted just up the road from these bald cypress. #taxodium #taxodiumdistichum #baldcypress #conifer #deciduous #deciduousconifer #ualbany
Lookout! . from buildings.fortmissoulamuseum.org: Sliderock Lookout 1930 - Manufactured in Columbia Falls in 1930, pre-packaged lookouts, similar to this lookout, were shipped throughout a four-state region for assembly on a tower or bare ground. This lookout was dismantled at its site 40 miles southeast of Missoula, atop Sliderock Mountain, and moved to the Museum in 1983 with the assistance from the Friends of the Historical Museum and the Missoula Chapter of the Society of American Foresters. . . . . . . . #firelookout #historic #forestservice #museum #twighlight #missoula #gray #rain #winter #deciduousconifer #montanahistory #mthist
РУС 🇷🇺👇Bald cypress is also called "swamp", as it is native to swampy and wet areas of the south east US. The mature cypresses have an interesting peculiarity that really facinates me: their aerial roots, or "knees" that sometimes are found at a distance of several meters from the tree. There are 2 main theories explaining what they are for: to obtain oxigen from the air during the times of high water level, or to provide additional support for trees that grow in moist, unstable soils near water 🌲 Anyway, both of the theories haven't been completely proved yet🤔 У болотных кипарисов есть одна интересная особенность: взрослые деревья дают отростки боковых корней, растущие вертикально вверх и возвышающиеся над водой или почвой. Зрелище удивительное, тем более, что такие корни могут достигать значительной высоты 🤗 Некоторые учёные считают, что таким образом кипарисы, растущие в заболоченных местах, получают кислород для корневой системы, находящейся под водой. Согласно другой теории, таки корни нужны для придания дереву дополнительной устойчивости во влажной, рыхлой почве. Однозначного ответа пока нет! 🤗
РУС🇷🇺👇I took first 3 pictures of these gorgeous bald cypresses (Taxodium distichum, 🇮🇹 Cipresso delle palude) in the end of November, when they had their fall copper orange needles on 😍This tree is one of the few deciduous conifers (hence its common name "bald"), and as you can see on the next pics, by now they are really bald, carpeting all around with soft needles ❤ It's a large and long-lived tree - up to 600 years and more! As a conifer, it is also cone-bearing, right now the cones are too soft and literally fall into pieces when in hand. And they don't resemble much most conifers' cones! For me, more like those of cypresses, unfortunately I don't have a picture to share.. Какие вы знаете хвойные деревья, сбрасывающие на зиму иголки? Я - лиственницу ) А еще этой осенью открыла для себя потрясающе красивый болотный кипарис. 😍 На первых фото - в конце ноября, в прекрасном осеннем одеянии, остальные - сейчас, когда иголки (на самом деле, сбрасываются целые веточки, это называется "ветвепад") покрывают ковром все вокруг🤗. Эти деревья - долгожители, 600 лет - солидный возраст! Как и положено хвойному дереву, образует шишки, мягкие и больше похожие на шишки кипариса - отсюда и название 😊
Want to plant a Ginkgo? If you are making lists of plants to order for your garden next year, consider this dwarf, spreading, semi-pendulous Ginkgo shrub (Ginkgo biloba ‘Mariken’) which grows slowly to 3’ tall and 8’ wide. It is a male cultivar, so you won’t have to contend with any messy, smelly fruits! I found this mature specimen growing by an entrance to the #smithsonianmuseumofnaturalhistory a few months ago. #nofilter #nofilterneeded #ginkgobilobamariken #gardenplanning #dcgardens #gardendc #deciduousconifer #treesofinstagram #shrubsofinstagram #smithsoniangardens #ginkgobiloba #maidenhairtree #igdc
NJ State Champion Metasequoia glyptostrobiodes (Dawn Redwood). Located at the corner of the Stone Cottage across from the Tubbs House at Willowwood Arboretum. #deciduousconifer #livingfossil #dawnredwood #hortlife #gardeninautumn
Me and the tamarack, we're fans of bogs. #pinecone #tamarack #wisconsin #larixlaricina #deciduousconifer #fallcolors
Photo @stephen_matera //Alpine Larch trees in their pre-autumn green beneath Tower Mountain, The Larch, sometimes called a Tamarack, is a deciduous conifer, meaning it has needles and cones, but the needles turn golden yellow in autumn and fall off for winter. I love The Larch in any color, or on Monty Python, but especially framed by sharp peaks and backlit at sunset. Follow me @stephen_matera for more images like this from Washington and around the world. #deciduousconifer #thelarch
The Dawn Redwood has a beautiful color before it loses all its needles! #dawnredwood #metasequoia #deciduousconifer #inmygarden #autumncolors #fallfoliage
And now, number one: The larch. The larch. . . #Americanlarch #tamarack #larch #deciduousconifer #larixlaricina
I love this deciduous conifer - it’s so rare to get to see those ‘needles’ turn golden and fall to the ground. Love the way they standout this time of year ~ enjoy your day~ ❀ #getoutside . . #deciduousconifer #deciduous #goldenneedle #optoutside #takeawalk #artinspiration #afternoonwalks
Tamarack 😍 pine cones are almost like roses of winter, when all other flowers are gone, don't you think? Tamarack is a deciduous conifer, meaning it is both deciduous and coniferous. These trees form cones and sprout needles like conifer trees. Yet, they change colors in the fall and lose their needles every year like deciduous trees 😲 . . #tamarack #seed #pinecone #pineseed #rose #cone #gold #yellow #evergreen #deciduous #coniferous #deciduousconifer #everyellow #tree #hike #november #fall #gorgeous #tamaracktree #naturalbeauty
If you’ve ever visited Town Creek Indian Mound you’ve probably noticed the row of trees that line the parking area. And, depending when you visited, these “evergreen” trees may have looked very different! • Most trees fall into one of two categories, either deciduous or evergreen, but there is a third category of trees, deciduous conifers, which have needles that fall off in the winter! And the Bald Cypress trees at Town Creek fall into that third category. Their needles are a rich green in spring and summer and turn a coppery red in the fall before they drop, leaving the trees, well…bald! • #nchistoricsites #towncreek #towncreekindianmound #themound #tcim #trees #baldcypress #cypress #needle #evergreen #deciduous #deciduousconifer #conifer #mtgileadnc #treestagram
Larch. As the needles turn yellow and fall there are always a few branches revealed that escaped pinching. #deciduousconiferbonsai #larchbinsai #bonsai #deciduousconifer
Tamarack trees... the only Wisconsin conifer to lose its 'leaves' in the winter. #ExploreALNC #NovemberPhenology #TamarackTrees #Tamaracks #Tamarack #DeciduousConifer
Taxodium distichum - Bald Cypress - deciduous conifer (!) that grows on saturated and seasonally inundated soils. . . . . . . . #plantgeek #plantID #taxodiumdistichum #deciduousconifer #treesknees #grundfamilyvacation
Larches dressed in their autumn best 😍 . . . . . #larix #pdxtrees #hoytarboretum #deciduousconifer
This is a #Larch ( #Larix ) tree.... The only #DeciduousConifer in North America. They only grow to be 50' - 75' tall, and can live to be 200-300 years old. They also loose their needles in the fall unlike other Conifer trees (Spruce, Pine, hemlock) and regrow every spring. #ChunkFarm #Nature #Tree
Peaking at the barn through the needles of one of our farm's unique coniferous trees which will soon turn golden and shed for fall #dawnredwood #deciduousconifer #treelegacy #conservation #weddingbarn #TheBarnAtGraversTreeFarm
How can you not love a deciduous conifer? 💛💚💛 #tamarack #larixlaricina #deciduousconifer
These Golden Tamarack trees are everything in the Fall. #idahome #deciduousconifer #CountrySide #MountainLife
I love that the needles of this tree change color in the fall #tamarak #deciduousconifer #fall2017 #ohio #treelove #gooutside
Hiked blue lake today. Totally worth seeing the deciduous conifer subalpine larch. #Larch #PNW #hiking #bluelake #deciduousconifer #upperleftcorner #larches

#BaldCypress #FallColors (#Taxodiumdistichum ). This #deciduousConifer has, for a few days, #everyFreakingFallColor at the same time, then it turns a beautiful rust color before losing all needles for the season. A favorite, :)

| inktober day twenty two | . . A big part of why I love this time of year is because of the changing larches. A deciduous conifer - that in itself is pretty neat. (#neature ) The other day on a bike ride where the trail was lined with larches, we talked about how the trees would hopefully light our way like light bulbs of the forest (it was pretty dark by the time we got off the trail). Maybe later I'll color this drawing in, but for now I'm sitting in a coffee shop without a yellow pen. P.S. drawing every day is proving to be pretty hard! Trying my best. #inktober #larch #larchtree #deciduousconifer #conifer #linedrawing
tamarack - Larix laricina. Found this very small tree within a fen. Tamarack can get fairly large, although it's cousin European larch - Larix decidua gets much larger in size. These types of trees are considered deciduous conifers, i.e. their needles fall during autumn just as a regular deciduous tree does with its leaves. #neature #deciduousconifer #larch #tamarack #wetlandplantsofontario #fenplants #botany #dendrology
