I'm not great on conifers. Is this some kind of taxodium?

Maybe Taxodium. My first thought was Dawn Redwood (Metasequoia) - its very similar to Taxodium.

It may be growing like that because the central leader was cut or damaged at some point. Neither tree is what I would consider a neat, conifer shape.

Looks like Metasequoia glyptostroboides Gold Rush.
Twigs opposite on the branch.

Thank You!
Metasequoia fits the bill.
