Giant Sequoia next to the penguin exhibit

Thanks to David for sending photographs of these couple of Redwood trees he noticed while he was at Chester Zoo.

Dawn Redwood
The two close up pictures illustrate the difference between the foliage of these two trees. The picture of the Dawn Redwood foliage is superb in that it clearly shows the classic layout of the tiny leaves on the fronds; it illustrates the directly opposing nature of each pair rather than the alternate layout that is found on other trees of similar style.
