Standing Water = No Problem
If you have some low areas that puddle after heavy rains - this is not a problem for our Dawn Redwood Tree. 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 = up to 50 feet! And it grows quickly...Up to 5 feet per year.
Amazing foliage and Color
The Dawn Redwood's beautiful, fern-like foliage develops in the spring, adding a perfect green color to your landscape that thrives through the summer season. The majestic, fast-growing tree transitions in the fall, as if on queue to provide a gentle gold hue - the perfect homage to Autumn.
Numerous Valuable Qualities
This fast-growing Conifer is versatile. It takes a uniform pyramidal shape and can be planted as a shade tree to render relief from the hot summer sun. It makes an impression when planted as an ornamental tree - or in groupings. Landscape professionals often chose this tree for borders and property lines because when planted in rows - they provide an attractive privacy fence.

Customer Reviews & Photos
Got a tiny one of these on a whim with a shipment of thuja. It's been planted two years and while the deer definitely like munching on it it's hardy as heck. It's grown at least a foot each year and had bounced right back after each winter even after having winter temps in the single digits.
Came fast taller than expected. We planted in pot for winter. Has held up well. We've watered it a lot but its also rained so it has been easy to care for.
Baby Dawn Redwood has some growing to do
We love Dawn Redwoods. The tiny little thing that arrived looks nothing like what we've seen but we are hopeful that this one will take off and be an impressive specimen soon.
New dawn redwood
Tree came quickly but was suffering a little bit upon arrival. We got it into the ground quickly and after 4 weeks it seems to be doing well. I am glad I got the replacement insurance Incase the tree doesn't survive the winter but they I am satisfied thus far
Growing fast like it said. Lots of soft light green needles. The real test will be how it does after the cold Minnesota winter.
