Dawn Redwood review
Good but last name is Harper. Tree was received and has been planted very carefully and all directions were followed. Tree was very dry and so must be watched for signs of life this spring. For this reason, it is awkward to submit answers to the questions asked below.
Both trees arrived in good shape and were in the ground within the hour after delivery
Hopefully it was arm enough for them to take root by spring If all works well I will be back for more! Come Spring!
Perfect. Gorgeous in my forest. May get another to help heal MotherEarth. Have three with this one, perhaps need fourth.
40 year dawn redwood review ( READ)
After having dawn redwoods for 40 years+ just wanted to add my 2 cents to potential buyers. I live in eastern pennsylvania, the 4 trees I have flourish here. These are fast growing redwoods, so plant accordingly, too close to your house you will be cutting it down within 20 years, they will hit 70+ feet within 35 years and be the tallest trees in your neighborhood. The Roots do pierce that surface so they are not driveway or patio friendly, their wood is very brittle and soft so you will have lots of small and midsized branches after storms, on the other hand even though they are a brittle tree they are very storm sturdy, the fern like leaves let the air pass through them unlike maples and oaks so you will rarely have large branches break off. If they are near your storm gutters you will be cleaning them alot, the leaves do not all fall off whole in the fall, most of them segment into small individual needles, and the small cones and tassles then fall in the springtime. Overall they are beautiful trees just be aware where you plant them.
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.
