Customer Reviews & Photos
Awesome. Great experience talking to people. They were very knowledgeable and answered my questions
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!
I ended up getting the one wrong tree, sent a London Plane, instead of the (4) Dawn Redwoods But called and they corrected the mistake and sent the last Dawn Redwood right away. Thank you
Easy fast efficient.
I have purchased a number of Dawn redwood trees. They are simply amazing. First year 3ft of growth (transplant shock). Years thereafter show 5-7ft of growth. Trunk diameter about the size of my thumb at year 1, at year three it is about the size of ankle. I do lots of water and fertilize with an acid fertilizer. In 10 years this tree will become enormous. Cool looking bark and leaves. Word of caution: I would plant away from sidewalks and driveways. I planted mine next to my driveway thinking maybe in 30 years it might be an issue.... it was going to be a problem by year 5. Good-news, I transplanted it again (12ft tall) and it survived.
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.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately, however we are currently experiencing delays and could take up to 11-14 days from date of purchase. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.
