One of the free trees offered on Friday, April 29, from 3-5 pm is a Dawn Redwood.
Technically, Dawn Redwood isn’t an evergreen, but it is a conifer that produces cones for its seeds. It offers feathery foliage that looks gorgeous in spring and summer. In autumn, the needles turn russet red and then drop, exposing the tree’s interesting architectural branching habit. This deciduous coniferous tree is useful for casting shade and adding privacy.
The Township will be also planting two Dawn Redwood trees at Copley Community Park. Along with planting a few much-needed shade trees, we will be offering a mulching project and fun activities. If you would like to volunteer for this day, please let us know. Saturday 11 am to 2 pm, April 30.
