Those low areas - that puddle after heavy rains - will kill almost any tree, except Dawn Redwoods. 

Even grows in standing water. 

Dawn Redwoods are considered by many to be the Fastest Growing Conifer. Under ideal conditions they have been reported to grow up to 5 feet per year. 

Once very hard-to-find trees, but recent demand has boosted cultivation so that everyone can have access to this beautiful tree! 

The Dawn Redwood’s beautiful, fern-like foliage develops in the spring and turns a gentle gold in the fall. 

Great when planted alone as an ornamental tree or in groupings. 

A great tree for borders and fence lines. 

Grows consistently into a pyramidal form and makes an attractive shade tree. 

Plant away from foundations and plan for it eventually being a large tree. 

Adaptable to almost any soil - except desert sand … can withstand both moderate flooding and drought. 

These unique trees are great in open spaces... but also look attractive in rows.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.

Tree to Door

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

Can I Plant Now?

Yes... Your Dawn Redwood can be planted any time of year... even Winter. Roots will continue to grow on warm days, giving your tree a head-start for Spring.

It's Easy to Plant your Dawn Redwood


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Dawn Redwood.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Dawn Redwood gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Dawn Redwood again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

Low and behold my Dawn Redwood shot up 6 ft. the first year and every year after, so far. Now Dawn Redwoods are one of my favorite trees by far!

By: John Martin
The Dawn Redwood arrived in perfect shape and a great deal of new growth showing. Just one of four trees purchased from Fast Growing Trees and everyone has been a great success.

By: Sarah
a must for wet areas! My baby tree is growing beautifully and rapidly in a drainage area with lots of water. Basically it is holding my hill together with its roots and someday will shade my horse (its in a pasture). Horse has little interest in eating this tree, mustn't taste good or its too tough which is great. My parents have one that at 30 years of age stands over 80 feet tall. That big redwood survived Hurricane Sandy and the subsequent Nor'easter in coastal NJ while trees all around it snapped and broke. Great tree!

By: Judith
The tree was well packed and arrived in terrific condition. The foliage on this tree is so beautiful the pictures don't do it justice! I can't wait to see how the Dawn Redwood does in our backyard.
