Forest tree

Our Canadian forest is rich with deciduous and coniferous trees. Indigenous trees are obviously adapted to Canadian climate as they are natives. However, we have added to the list below, on the top of our native forest trees, a few species that will perfectly adapt themselves to a forest in Canada. We can be proud of each of our native forest trees, many are nobles and even produce fruit, nuts or syrup. Too many forests are being cut, planting a native forest tree is a way to improve our country. Forest trees are also great windbreakers. The native forest tree you buy here has been planted with respect to its own growth pattern, without any pesticides or fertilizer.
