The Dawn Redwood Tree (Metasequoia glyptostroboides Dawn Redwood) hails from China. A non-evergreen (deciduous) conifer, it has been widely planted in Britain due to attractive conical shape and attractive orange autumn needle colour. This tree is also well-suited for planting in damp sheltered sites it grows quickly.
A large tree so expect a height of in excess of 6 metres (20 foot) after 10 years.
Our Dawn Redwood Trees are supplied at a height of between 1.3m and 2.4m in a 7L or 12L container for year round planting and better results than from bare-root stock.

Ornamental Tree Topping
All ornamental trees (not vines) are topped at 1.3 metres to encourage a natural ornamental tree shape with obvious exceptions e.g. patio sizes.This means that your tree was pruned during the growing process and then allowed to grow to the size it is now supplied at.

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.
Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.
UK Grown Ornamental Trees
All our trees are banned from overseas travel so that we can state they are all UK grown. We have removed Internet access from the nursery so they cannot book any flights.
