Can you give me an approximate life span in years for the Dawn
Redwood (metasequoia glytostroboides)? We know that coast redwoods
live for 2,200 years and giganteum can live 4,000. But I can't find
any life span for the dawn. Thanks
Good question, although the following indicates only 150 to 200 years in a
However, its longevity in more natural settings should presumably be
similar to the west coast trees.
