There is a Dawn Redwood tree (Metasequoia. glyptostroboides) in the garden of 1 Grosvenor Mount. Dawn Redwoods were thought to be extinct until rediscovered in 1944 in Northwest China, with seeds being brought back to Leeds shortly thereafter. There are two Dawn Redwoods growing in Leeds University campus of the same age as the one in Grosvenor Mount. This is an extremely rare tree, growing sufficiently far from buildings not to pose a risk of damage to them. I believe this tree thoroughly deserves to be protected.
