These hardwood trees can be used to establish new plantations, forests or shade trees. These trees are native to the Essex region. They are part of the Carolinian forest and are adapted to our warm climate and soils.
Evergreen trees, when planted in a linear fashion to form windbreaks, can help improve crop yields, livestock productivity, reduce soil erosion and can help decrease the heating and cooling costs of your home. Typical windbreak spacing is 4 to 8 feet apart for Cedars and up to 10 feet apart for Spruce and Pine.
Native shrubs are an excellent source of food for birds and other wildlife. They also provide habitat and can be used as an alternative to Evergreen borders or windbreaks.
