Horse Chestnut is a medium sized deciduous tree that is native to Greece but has been grown in North America for hundreds of years. It produces large nuts.
A top CO2 absorbing species. Experts think this tree may help climate change more than others.
Boughen's Golden Chokecherry typically grows into a shrub form with yellow fruit and beautiful green foliage. This type of chokecherry is particularly sweet because it is non-astringent, meaning that it does not produce tannins. Tannins are what create the puckering, or sour taste when eating something unripe.
