The Dawn Redwood is truly an impressive tree that dates back to the time when dinosaurs roamed freely. They are strong, fast growing deciduous trees that display brilliant color and shed their leaves in the Fall, which then grow back in the Spring. Dawn Redwoods are beautiful trees and a great addition to any large yard or park. The smallest of the three different types of Redwoods, Dawn Redwoods can typically grow to 50-60 feet tall.
During the Tertiary period, it is believed that the Dawn Redwood was once one of the most abundant trees in the Northern Hemisphere. In the early 1900s, scientists discovered fossils of this tree and concluded it had been extinct for millions of years. Then, in 1944, a forester found an enormous Dawn Redwood existing in Sichuan Province, China.
