Choosing trees for your lot – Red Oak

Native to North America, the Red Oak is a stunning shade tree suitable for larger lots and rural settings.

Red Oak or Quercus ‘Rubra’ will reach mature height of 75’ tall and width of 40’-60 wide with a life expectancy of 150 to 500 years.

Leaves are a deep glossy green in the summer and change to a beautiful red in the fall.

These trees are great for encouraging wildlife; its acorns are an important winter food source for squirrels, deer, wild turkeys, and several songbirds.

The Red Oak prefers a soil that has moderate moisture and is well drained.

Browse online and then come into Carp Garden Centre to choose the tree or trees best suited to where you live.

Choosing trees for your lot – Youngii Weeping Birch

Prized for its graceful weeping profile in the landscape, Youngii Weeping Birch makes a stunning focal piece.

Youngii Weeping Birch will have a mature height and spread of about 15 feet, making it ideal for smaller spaces and gardens.

The pointy leaves are a gorgeous deep green which transform to yellow in the fall.

Its bark is the characteristic birch white with black fissures, providing four-season interest.

This tree prefers moderately moist soil and may require supplemental watering during dry spells.

Browse our tree stock online, or just come in. You’ll want to see your tree choices in person and talk to our knowledgeable staff.

Choosing trees for your lot – Katsura

The Katsura is a mid-sized, deciduous tree with attractive heart-shaped leaves.

This tree requires partial to full sun and is a great choice for a smaller, urban lot.

Leaves emerge in the spring reddish-purple in colour and change over time to a bluish green during the summer. Fall colour can range from yellow to apricot to crimson.

Fun fact: The Katsura tree emits a wonderful caramel, cotton candy-like scent in the fall.

This tree prefers moderately moist soil and should not be planted in drier areas. A wonderful specimen tree!
