Ironwood Tree

Bred by Jeffries Nurseries, the Skyfest is a fast growing, tall cottonwood with excellent disease resistance and adaptability to many kinds of soil. In the fall, its leaves turn a golden yellow.

This species has an aggressive root system, making it unsuitable for planting close to buildings but very drought resistant and an excellent choice for shelterbelts.

Ironwood Tree is one of the strongest and most resilient trees you will find in North America. In fact, it has the hardest and most dense wood of any North American tree. Prized for its oval shaped canopy and showy winter trunk, this striking shade tree will make a beautiful addition to any yard. Make sure you do not plant near roads as it is highly salt sensitive.

Note: Unfortunately this difficult to grow species is not currently scheduled to grow at TreeTime.ca. Perhaps try purchasing seed from SeedTime.ca and growing your own? Or sign up for a restock notification above.
