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.

Prairie Skyrise Aspen has a compact and columnar branching structure that makes it a great privacy screen for small yards. You'll notice that the old and new growth have contrasting colors of green, giving this tree an attractive and unique appearance.

Prairie Skyrise Aspen is more disease resistant, columnar, and typically leafs out earlier than Swedish Aspen.
