Thereof, can a redwood tree grow in Minnesota?
It is closely related to and resembles bald cypress (Taxodium) and redwood (Sequoia) trees. Dawn redwood survives in USDA Hardiness Zones 4-8 and may prove well in handling Minnesota if overwintered properly. They are best grown in moist, humusy soils with good drainage, and in full sun.

This oak tree, located near the Mississippi River Bluffs, sits in a parcel of land between Franklin Terrace and West River Parkway just north of Franklin Avenue. For the entire history of the city through 2010, it was the oldest tree – perhaps the oldest freestanding object of any kind – in Minneapolis.
