no image

White Oak is large, long-lived tree with an irregular trunk divided into spreading, often horizontal, stout branches. A highly adaptable tree, White Oak features beautiful green leaves that turn red-purple in the fall and green acorns.

Prairie Sky Poplar is a fast-growing columnar variety of poplar tree developed at Agriculture and Agri-food Canada's Morden Research Station.

It is adaptable to many soil conditions and seems to do best in primarily the southern-most parts of the prairies.

Good as a shade tree or as a shelterbelt tree, it is often used in buffer zones as a visual screen or hedge.

Ideal for lining properties, roads, etc. to give an attractive visual hedge.
