Butternut

Butternut is one of the few walnut varieties native to Canada. The nuts are sought after for their mild, sweet, and oily taste. Ensure this tree is planted in full sun and well-drained soil for best results.

Butternut is self-fertile but it has better yields when planted near other butternuts. It can survive in zone 2, but reliably produces nuts in zone 3.

Douglas Maple is a fast growing and long lived short tree. The leaves of the Douglas Maple are densely packed and end very close to the ground, making it an excellent tree for ensuring privacy.

In the fall, the leaves make a brilliant change to red or orange, depending on the tree.
