There are around twenty Dawn Redwood (Metasequoia glyptostrobodies) growing around the Gherkin. The building was opened in May 2004 and stands at 30 St Mary Axe in the City of London. It was originally called the Swiss Re Building but very quickly was being referred to by its new appropriate nickname. It has 41 floors and the tower is 180 metres (591 ft) tall, so the trees around it will always be dwarfed by the building.
