Where to plant Dawn Redwood??
We were giving a Dawn Redwood tree (sapling, about 3-4ft tall) to plant in our yard by my wife's aunt who owns a greenhouse. She told us to plant it as soon as possible. We have no idea where to plant it as we hear it can grow large and we only have 1 tree on our entire property right now. We have a 60-80' unknown large tree in the very back corner of our lot and all other bushes were removed when we bought our house last year because they were diseased or dead. The only tree that was removed was a small cherry tree that was completely rotten and it was on the grass between the road and the sidewalk. We have a large cedar tree that is on the side of our house, but it is being removed by the town (it's on their property) due to being completely hollow inside and having suffered severe damage from ice storms we had a few years back. I was thinking a good spot to plant this tree would be close to where that cedar tree is on the side of our house (on our property and not the town's though. What do you guys think?
Also, that large pool is no longer there. It's just grass there now. Thanks for your help!
