Dawn Redwood Trees for Sale Online


Dawn Redwood is a deciduous conifer with a narrow, pyramidal form. Soft green fern-like needles turn bronzy-pink to golden-apricot in fall. 


Full Description

The Dawn Redwood is an ancient tree that knew the dinosaurs but is well-suited to modern landscape plantings. Dawn Redwoods are a deciduous conifer producing small, round 1/2" to 1" cones. It has an upright pyramidal shape in youth, maturing into a more rounded crown. The bright green, feathery leaves turn orange-brown or reddish-brown in the fall. Likes full sun and prefers moist, deep, well-drained soils. One of the fastest-growing trees available.


Planting Information

We suggest when planting your newly purchased Dawn Redwood Tree that you dig a hole twice as wide as the root system but not deeper. Depending on the quality of your existing soil you may need to add a locally sourced compost or topsoil to the back-fill soil. We do not recommend using straight topsoil or compost as a back-fill soil because more times than not these products will retain entirely to much moisture and will cause the root system to rot. Adding compost or topsoil will help the young feeder roots of Dawn Redwood Tree to spread through the loose, nutrient rich soil, much easier than if you used solely the existing soil which more times than not will be hard and compacted. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant to deep. That is why we do not recommend planting in a hole any deeper than the soil line of the plant in the pot. A good rule is that you should still be able to see the soil the plant was grown in after back-filling the hole.
