    I live in the East Coast states right near the Mills reservation which has a stunning view of NYC. Its’ a forested ridge. In Montclair NJ. (van Vlieck Gardens) there are two stunning Metasequoias. Dawn Redwood. (Metasequoia) grows well around here. It is cold tolerant also. Given that NYC is so close Mills Reservation is a popular spot for hiking near NYC. It’s in Cedar Grove, near the Montclair border. I am trying to arouse interest in this gorgeous tree, here. Its Chinese the phylogenetic parent of Coast redwoods, and smells the same. It’s good for mountain biking as its soft.
