Leaves are dark green and smooth on the upper surface, alternately arranged on the stem, rounded at the base and tapering to an acutely pointed tip. Fall colour is a bright yellow. heavy seed crop produced typically every other year; does not form taproots.

Site and soils: Will grow on many soil types, from steep rocky outcrops to flat muskegs of the boreal forest. Best growth occurs on deeper, well drained to dry soils depending on the location.

Rural plantings: Often one of the first species to colonize a burned area within the northern latitudes and an important species for moose browse. Planted to reclaim old mines and other disturbed sites. Wood is often used for pulpwood and firewood.

Urban settings: : Often planted as a lawn tree.

Native to: North America

Our plants are hardy for other locations but optimal growth may not be met, for advice on moving stock to other locations please contact the nursery office.
