It’s National Forest Week 2018
Sept. 23-29, 2018
Join us in celebrating the importance of trees this September during National Forest Week. Here’s a couple exceptional specimens we found in the nursery this week:
Acer palmatum var. dissectum ‘Crimson Queen’
Delicate arching branches that turn bright crimson red in the fall. This dwarf tree is extremely versatile because it won’t overgrow a small space.
Morus alba ‘Pendula’
The leaves of this beautifully weeping specimen have been traditionally used in China for thousands of years to feed silk worms when making silk. Cool! It also produces tasty Mulberries.
Other ways to participate:
Volunteer with a local tree planting organization like Tree Canada.
Choose a public space to clean up.
Go for a walk and look for the tallest, oldest trees you can find.
Plant a tree.
Admire a tree.
