Dawn Redwood is a magnificent deciduous tree. It has gorgeous soft green needles, and is a fantastic and inspiring tree to see and grow. Dawn Redwood is a magnificent deciduous tree, and is a relative of the California redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) and giant sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum), diverging around 150 million years ago. Dawn redwood prefers a wetter environment to grow, and it needs full sun to grow its best when it is a larger tree. We start these as 'understory' trees and they love the high open canopy above them giving the good indirect light. It does best in moist to wet soils, so it can be a good choice for large rain garden locations. As with all trees a good organic planting location would be ideal for these trees.
Schip Laurels are a highly desirable and fast growing evergreen hedge shrub that can provide instant privacy and beauty. They become an instant hedge and provide instant Privacy! We are one of a very few local growers who actually grow Schip Laurels in this area, and we are proud of how green and succulent our specimens are. Although we do ship in larger 5' specimens from the west coast, our younger locally grown Pennsylvania specimens are outstanding. These are very popular, and will offer you privacy while other shrubs/ trees lose their leaves in the fall and winter... This is an excellent screening and privacy specimen that is lush, evergreen, and is a friendly privacy wall that adds year around beauty and will not offend any neighbor. Highly recommended! These Schip Laurel pictured are approximately 5' tall.
