Dawn Redwood 3-4'

The dawn redwood (Metasequoia glyptostroboides) is a deciduous, coniferous tree native to China. It is one of the few species of trees that were thought to be extinct but was rediscovered in the 1940s. Since then, it has become a famous ornamental tree in many parts of the world.

Dawn redwoods are large trees that grow up to 100 feet tall and 25 feet wide.

When young, they have a conical shape, but their crowns become more rounded. The leaves of the dawn redwood are soft and feathery, and they turn a beautiful reddish-brown in the fall before dropping off for the winter. The reddish-brown bark peels off in long strips, revealing a smooth, tan inner bark.
One of the unique features of the dawn redwood is its ability to regenerate. After being cut down, they can regrow from the stump, making them famous trees for reforestation.
Dawn redwoods are adaptable to various soil types and can grow in full sun to partial shade. They also tolerate wet soils and can even grow in standing water.
There are several reasons why the dawn redwood is a good choice for planting in landscapes and gardens:
The dawn redwood is a fast-growing tree, meaning it can quickly establish itself in a landscape and provide shade and visual interest in a relatively short amount of time.
The feathery, deciduous foliage of the dawn redwood gives it a unique appearance that sets it apart from other coniferous trees. In the fall, the leaves turn a beautiful reddish-brown color, which adds a stunning visual element to the landscape.
The dawn redwood is adaptable to many soil types, making it a good choice for planting in many locations.
