Butternut
Quebec Poplar

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.

A hybrid of Simon's Poplar and Balsam Poplar, Quebec Poplar is a fast-growing deciduous tree. This particular selection was one of the finalists for the Quebec Ministry of Forest's Hybrid Poplar breeding program.

It is useful for quickly establishing a privacy screen or as part of a shelterbelt, and prefers moist soil. Disease resistance is likely high as is cold hardiness.

Quebec is a province with a strong forestry sector and we are excited to be offering this variety.
