Native Plants and Trees
Almost all of the plants and trees
you may have bought from nurseries and greenhouses are non-native
species. These non-native species can look very nice and many are
did you know many of our birds, butterflies and insects cannot feed
on these plants. This is a factor in the rapid disappearance of many
of our species of native butterflies and songbirds from our urban
areas and the invasion of more aggressive imports like starlings
and house sparrows.
These non-native trees and plants generally require
more care and water to survive in our climate. When you look
around in the country you will see that nobody is watering the
grass, shrubs, plants and trees and yet they are green and flourishing.
They are specialized to our drier and cooler Alberta climate
and in turn thrive with very little care.
We offer healthy locally grown native trees,
shrubs and plants and also offer complete design and planting
service whether it's a small yard in the city or an acreage right
up to large municipal plantings along streets and highways to
commercial buildings, school yards, housing developments, senior
