Andrew Lytle Dawn Redwoods, Monteagle

On the Monteagle Sunday School Assembly in Monteagle stands a grove of some of the oldest known trees in the world. The dawn redwood (Metasequoia glyptostroboides) has been found in fossils dating back 100 million years ago and was once native to most of North America. It was thought to be extinct until some trees were found growing in a remote valley in central China. In 1947 the Arnold Arboretum sponsored an expedition to the area and the collected seeds were brought back to share with nurseries, some of which found their way to the McMinnville nursery industry.
