Thiessen Saskatoon
Eastern White Cedar (Arborvitae)

Thiessen Saskatoon is a deciduous shrub that produces delicious edible fruit. They are one of the most productive saskatoons. Their fruit is great in pies, preserves or eating fresh.

Thiessen Saskatoon is most popular with u-pick operations for its taller tree-like shape and much larger berries. But it is not the best choice for berry orchards because it is too tall for most mechanical harvesting equipment.

Eastern White Cedar is a slender growing conifer often used as a decorative tree or a hedge. This tree is an effective privacy screen even in winter and a great long term solution to urban crowding or a drab yard.
