Coniferous Trees

Coniferous trees (evergreens) are usually the easiest to grow. They are the best option for planting in open areas where seedlings will be exposed to sun and wind. If you are planting a large number of trees, it is recomended that you plant 70-80% coniferous trees. 

Deciduous Trees

Deciduous trees lose their leaves in the fall.  They are usually less hardy during the seedling stage.  Generally they do best in areas of low exposure - such as an area that is already forested.  With extra care and protection, they can be nurtured to become large, beautiful shade trees. 

Shrubs

Shrubs are typically shorter than trees. They offer a great way to provide diversity and habitat on your property. They are a option where hydro wires and other overhead utilities are a concern. 

Advancing Species

These deciduous species aren't currently found naturally in the Kawartha Watershed, but they are migrating from the South as the climate warms. These species are becoming more suitable in the Kawartha watershed.  Consider planting some of these on your property to see how they do.
