Hill Poplar
Western Red Cedar

Hill Poplar is a hardy, fast-growing tree with a narrow crown. Hill Poplars function well as a privacy screen or windbreak.

This attractive, long-lived shade tree is a great choice for home and commercial consumers alike, as it requires little pruning or maintenance care.

Hill Poplar has largely been replaced by more desirable hybrid poplar varieties that are more resistant to disease.

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.
