my baby redwood tree

Today the mailman delivered my baby redwood tree. It's only 1 meter high, but it will grow. There are 3 kinds of redwood trees. The giant sequoia , The coast redwood, and the Chinese redwood or Dawn redwood. The first 2 get a little too big for my garden. The Dawn redwood will also get very big , up to 60 meters high (but most likely 30 to 40 meters high). We are so excited about our new tree! I wonder if I should keep it in the house until the spring. I lost 2 trees last winter because of the cold. I wouldn't worry about it if it was established. It's a rare tree, I don't want to lose it.
