Fast-Growing Tree, Even in Wet Soil
Why Dawn Redwood Trees?
Year-round interest, versatility, and easy growth (even in wet soil) are just a click away with the Dawn Redwood Tree. Not only does this tree deliver good looks almost anywhere, but it also couldn't be easier to plant and grow.
Unlike similar varieties, standing water is no problem for the Dawn Redwood. If you have low areas in your landscape that puddle after heavy rains, plant the Dawn. Most trees can't survive in this type of environment, but this tree loves it and soaks it all in to grow to amazing heights of up to 50 feet!
You'll get amazing foliage and color without any hassle. The Dawn Redwood's beautiful, fern-like foliage develops in the spring, adding perfect green color to your landscape that thrives through the summer season. The majestic, fast-growing tree transitions in the fall to a gentle gold in homage to autumn.

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Plant your Redwood in well-draining soil and in a spot that receives full sun. Place in a hole twice as wide and just as deep as the root ball. There's no need to amend the soil, but do add a thick layer of mulch around the base to retain moisture.
2. Watering: Make sure your Dawn Redwood receives one inch of water each week, and more if you live in a dry, drought-prone area. Rain is usually enough to keep it hydrated, but you'll likely need to water once a week for the first couple of years.

Customer Reviews & Photos
Items arrived well packaged/protected. Easy to plant. I purchased the warranty, so I have a year to find out if they'll make it, but they appear to be healthy trees considering it's late fall.
Awesome. Great experience talking to people. They were very knowledgeable and answered my questions
Arrived in great shape, put it in the ground April 28th 2020. It gets full sun in our front yard. I included 2 pics to show how it has changed since we planted it. It has survived multiple storms, 100+ degree heat and has lots of new growth. I'm confident once it's roots are more established its going to take off. We let our lawn sprinklers water it 3 times per week for 40mins and that seems to be enough. Really happy with this purchase!
My first dawn redwood was quite a success. So much so that I had to move the tree before it destroyed my driveway. It grew 7ft in its 3rd growing season. The others are now at least 10 ft from any pavement and doing well. Very fast growing in moist soil, full sun, neutral to acid soil, and some fertilizer. Wish I would have planted these 15 years ago!
This is a beautiful tree! The needles are so soft, like a fern. It arrived in good condition and has done well in its new home. I can't wait to see it grow!
