Northern Evergreen & Windbreak Trees

Looking for an attractive evergreen that grows just about anywhere?

The Canadian Hemlock lives up to its name- it laughs at the cold. These evergreens thrive in cold regions where other varieties can't grow.
However, it is still able to grow in warmer climates, too. It does best in growing zones 3-8.

Canadian Hemlocks even grow in poor soil conditions. They enjoy either full sun or shade. Very cold hardy.

When planted in close proximity, these hemlocks produce a dense hedge that will not only provide plenty of privacy, but will also increase your property value!

The small, fine textured needles are dark green on top and lighter underneath. They grow in flat, feathery layers all the way to the ground. The bark is a colorful cinnamon-red.

Makes a great ornamental specimen. Plant near the corners of your home or near your patio. These evergreens add grace and charm to your landscape.

A great home for wildlife! The dense, low foliage provides excellent winter cover for many birds and small, furry animals that are fun to watch.

no luck!
The trees arrived, looking very good indeed, but within a month they were both dead. Perhaps the time of year we planted was not correct.
Thanks,

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Canadian Hemlock



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Canadian Hemlock.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Canadian Hemlock gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Canadian Hemlock again after the transplant is complete.

I like the fullness and the droopy look of the branches. Looking for a full tree that can work as a wind break also. If this grows well here I will order more.

I wanted evergreens for privacy near the end of my driveway. I also didn't want anything that looked formal since we live in a wooded setting.

I have a row of 32 Canadian Hemlocks going up one side of my property as a border/privacy. They are approx. 18-20ft in height. Should I keep leaves underneath each one to protect base of trunk for winter? I live in the Pittsburgh,Pa area and our winter is calling for a "brutal" one compared to previous winters. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Will trees and shrubs look like the photographs?


Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos. Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.


Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You!


Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
