I picked up a few new trees at the club auction this weekend. One of them was not labeled by the seller, but the auctioneer called it a bald cypress.

Now that I have it home, I think it looks more like a dawn redwood, but I'm not very good at plant identification. Can any of you experts help me out before I make some bad care and design decisions?

Seems like BC foliage to me, leaves are fairly fine. And it's hard to see in the pics but foliage seems alternating

I don't know if this helps, but here is a close shot of a branch.

Yes that pic sealed it. Definitely BC. Usually DR foliage is so coarse I can tell with out all the detail but this one is trimmed back pretty good. I look like a fool on here enough with incorrectly IDing things

Thanks for the feedback! I tried Google image search, but they looked so similar to me and I didn't notice the difference in leaf pattern.
