  3. I inadvertantly deleted John's post...which told me where I could find some Dawn Redwoods in NC! So I tried the DuckDuckGo search and found this..."Somewhere in the Sauraton Mountains of North Carolina, lies the Crescent Ridge Dawn Redwoods Preserve," which won't be opened until 2035 apparently. There is a photo of the man who's heading up the preserve efforts standing next to a Dawn Redwood in Durham NC. So I know one is available for me to see, somewhere. I hope John got my apology and will give me the link he suggested again!

  4. No problem, Barbara. The link I sent you was the same one you found I think - didn't realise it wasn't open yet. The link was:
    http://dawnredwood.org/
    However it's quite likely that there are others in public parks and gardens in the area as they were widely planted as ornamental trees.

  5. I also found a reference to a Dawn Redwood growing in the garden of the Biltmore Estate in Asheville NC.

  6. Oh goodie, I may have seen the one at the Biltmore Estate, as I've wandered their beautiful gardens several times. And soon I bet I'll do it again and find the Dawn Redwood! Thanks John!
