The Dawn Redwood is an impressive tree by anyone’s standard. Fossils in the northern parts of the United States show that the Dawn Redwood knew the dinosaurs. It was long thought to be extinct – until it was discovered alive and well in a rural, mountainous area of China.
The Dawn Redwood is a relatively carefree tree and also fast growing, one specimen in Virginia reached 120 feet in 30 years! While native to China, it has been planted successfully around the world.
