Selecting Native Trees and Shrubs for the Home Landscape

Monday, March 21, 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Woody plants, especially trees, represent a long-term investment in the home landscape. They provide shade and add vertical structure to the garden. Native species are beneficial to birds, pollinators, and other wildlife. Well selected, they can become a legacy piece for the property to be passed on to future homeowners. Planting the wrong tree in the wrong place, however, can create costly problems and potentially mean that the tree is destined to be removed as it grows larger. Fortunately, there is a diversity of tree and shrub species native to southern Ontario that can flourish in gardens of all sizes, light conditions, and soil types.

Join Master Gardener and ecologist Kevin Kavanagh who will introduce some of the best options for the residential property, including instruction on good planting techniques, positioning and longer-term maintenance.
