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.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.

Tree to Door

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

It's Easy to Plant 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.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

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.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

are all hemlock poisonous to animals?
A shopper on Jun 3, 2014
Best Answer: They can be poisonous if ingested by anyone out animal. The 3 dogs,2 cats, 36 chickens and Guinea hens leave the two hemlocks alone. They must know by instinct not to eat them. I love my tees. Good luck

Hi - can this be planted within 20 feet of a black walnut? I have a semi- to mostly-shaded border that I want to plant a screen on, but it turns out there is a walnut tree not far away.
Laura M on Jun 2, 2014
Best Answer: I am sorry. The hemlock I planted is doing well but it is no where close to a Black walnut in terms of distance. I do know that Black Walnut is hard on some plants and that it can at least stunt grass
