Thought to be extinct until discovered in China in the 1940s, Dawn Redwood is a great tree for a site that can handle some height.
Very fast growing, no serious disease or insect problems and can survive in a wide range of soil types and climates.
Dawn redwood is deciduous conifer so needles do fall of in the Fall but not before turning a nice coppery orange color.
A great tree to consider for folks looking to establish shade or a large screen in a short amount of time.
