Green Alder is known for its smooth grey bark and attractive shiny green leaves; it is commonly used in reclamation.

Staghorn Sumac is a popular ornamental shrub with red velvet like antlers that produce seeds that provide nice winter interest for landscapers and gardeners.

This low-maintenance plant is a great addition to any garden it is also used in shelterbelts.
