Dawn redwood tree planted on the courtyard property of SLAC National Lab located in Palo Alto. Two trees were given to the campus as a gift from scientists from China in 1965.
In November 2011, the SLAC National Lab dawn redwood trees turn a beautiful golden red before losing their needles. Thanks to Martha whom works at the lab, for sending this image.
