I have my sites on a gold dawn redwood...they are fast growing (although likely not quite as fast as the green) but sturdy. 40-50 feet tall in 10 years for the greens, or so I've read. The bark is beautiful, and they have a lovely, if slightly formal, conical shape.

Broken Arrow nursery in CT has them, as per website info, and I am planning a trip there, soon!

The Pepsico Headquarters near White Plains, NY, has a 20 acre sculpture garden with a grove of them and a walkway through, and I simply fell in love.

As a matter of fact, Kent, I did a false color IR of them, which photo I sent to the pixlist some months ago - the photo was all shades of yellow/orange, pretty much, iirc. I can resend that, or see if I can find some other shots of them for you, if you'd like.

This fall I'm removing a very large maple from my front yard and I would

I'm thinking about a Tricolor Beach, but I'm open to other suggestions.

Kent...Don't look for much shade from it in your lifetime...they are
fantastic trees, but such slow growers...especially the first few years.

The faster a tree grows though, the more weedy it becomes with weak branches
often damaged in the least little ice storm!

Sorry about that...
See you at First Look this weekend! I'm really excited to be able to go for
a third time!
