Horse Chestnut is a medium sized deciduous tree that is native to Greece but has been grown in North America for hundreds of years. Produces large nuts and both nuts and foliage have many medicinal uses.

Sundancer Poplar is a new, fast-growing, disease-resistant, and columnar variety of poplar tree developed at the Agroforestry Center in Indian Head, SK.

It is adaptable in many soil conditions and seems to do well across the prairies with extra popularity further north, in part due to how hardy it is.

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