Thiessen Saskatoon (Serviceberry)
Western Red Cedar

Thiessen Saskatoon is a deciduous shrub that produces delicious edible fruit. It is one of the most productive saskatoon varieties. Its fruit is great in pies, preserves or eating fresh.

Thiessen Saskatoon is popular with U-Picks and home owners because of its taller tree-like shape and larger berries. But it is not the best choice for berry orchards as it is too tall for most mechanical harvesting equipment.

Western Red Cedar is native to the Pacific Northwest, and is the largest tree in the cypress family. Featuring horizontol branching with scale-like dark green foliage that has a strong aroma. The wood is naturally durable and light, and is resistent to decay and insects, making it sought after for house siding, panelling, furniture, and fences. This is British Colombia's offical tree.
