Dawn Redwood

Introduction

The dawn redwood is prehistoric by any measure – thought to be extinct until discovered in a small portion of China in the 1940s. Smaller than its cousin in California, the dawn redwood is a stately, pyramid-shaped tree that loses its needles in the fall – thus earning its designation as a “deciduous conifer.”

Size and Light Requirements

Dawn redwoods need full sun and typically will attain 50 feet in height in 40 to 50 years.
