Dawn Redwoods in Pullen Park - planted for the US Bicentennial in 1976

The club planted 40 Dawn Redwoods in Pullen Park to commemorate the Bicentennial.  They were planted on “Liberty Hill”… but 40 years means a lot of change in Raleigh!  No one in the Park had heard of Liberty Hill.  I walked all over and didn’t find them.  AND THEN… driving home on Pullen Park Rd …. There they were. About 30 have survived. 

It’s a lovely grove… almost an Alllee with the redwoods planted on each side of the path and then a few more on the hillock to your left.  And they’ve grown!  3- 4 stories tall now!
