This tree was planted in a Gwinnett County, GA park
Looks very much like a coast redwood.
If the needles are opposite and turn brown and fall off in the fall, then it probably is a dawn redwood. If it has alternate needles and doesn’t lose its needles in the fall it probably is a coast redwood.
Bald Cypress, fine native tree for use anywhere in Georgia. Deciduous! GC Parks will typically only plant natives, so Coast Redwood—out of the question!
