Hello Folks,

I purchased a 10’ tall dawn redwood from a local nursery here in PA this past summer. I replanted it in this 32 gallon container to let it grow for a few years and help thicken the trunk a bit. Right now the trunk is at 2”. I have n place to plant it in the ground either.

I have a roll of burlap and was planning on wrapping the container and the first few inches of the trunk with it. Should I wrap any of the branches or should I leave them alone? Right now it’s on the east side of my house and receives little wind exposure.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Bobby

M. glyptostroboides is hardy to usda zone 4... it doesn't really need any protection in your location. The most I'd do is get it into the shade, maybe on the north side of your house.

I'm in the Chicago-Milwaukee area, midway between the two cities. I'm a full climate zone colder than you, zone 5b. For 4 years now I have simply set my pots of dawn redwood on the ground and ignored them for the winter. No problems at all. They are very winter hardy.
