Did you know that trees cut down on noise pollution? They also lower
air-conditioning costs in the summertime, absorb atmospheric
pollutants and provide clean, healthy air to breathe. They provide food
and shelter for wildlife and stabilize soil to prevent erosion. So what's
not to love about shade trees? All of our shade trees are container
grown to ensure better performance after planting.
We only use #1 grade stalk for our shade trees. This ensures a well
branched tree with a straight trunk. Choose from our wide selection of
maples, oaks, birch, linden and more.

The 5-6' Emerald or Brandon Cedars should be planted approximately 2' apart. The spacing should be measured from the center to center of each cedar. The goal is to plant each cedar as close together without having them touch each other. Allow the plants to grow into each other on its own. If planted too closely it could cause part of cedars to turn brown. To encourage quick growth water and fertilize regularly and ensure that triple mix soil is used when planting.
Our high-quality fruit trees are selected strains of certified, virus free plants. Our trees are two
years old when they ship to our stores to ensure faster fruiting and offer a more established, well
branched tree. A well branched fruit tree helps most varieties produce some fruit by the second
year of planting. For best results plant two varieties of the same fruit to guarantee cross-pollination.
Choose from varieties of Apple, Pear and Plum. See in-store for our full assortment.
Cherry varieties are available in BC and Ontario Markets only. Excluding Sudbury and Sault St Marie.
Fruit trees grow in a wide range of soil types. Apple varieties prefer heavy soils, such as clay, however they are quite adaptable to a wide range of soil types. Pear and plums grow well on clay soils. Cherries and peaches generally prefer well-drained soils made up of either clay or sand. Peach varieties must be grown in a highly organic soil.
For best results we suggest planting 2 varieties of the same fruit to guarantee cross-pollination. Either plant two together or if there are neighbouring apple trees with a close proximity one will be fine.
