CAROLINIAN TREES & SHRUBS

In recent years, much attention has been given to protecting and conserving Ontario's beautiful, useful, and sometimes rare native plant material. Southern Ontario is on the northern fringe of the vast Carolinian forest area of North America which at one time stretched from South Carolina to Northern Ontario. Many of the Carolinian plant species are very rare and on the verge of extinction.  Planting of these plants on private lands and the use of native and Carolinian species in landscaping will help to assure the continuation of this valuable part of our Canadian heritage for future generations to enjoy.

Benefits of Native Species:

    Creates a food web that increases wildlife such as songbirds and pollinators     Cools local climate through transpiration by actively growing during the hottest part of the year     Deters weeds and invasive species     Appropriate for the region's soil, hydrology, climate and natural rainfall     Absorbs excess nutrients from runoff, enhancing infiltration during periods of heavy rain     Drought tolerant     Naturally resistent to many diseases and insect pests     Create deep and extensive root systems, which help to stabilize the soil column and create an environment favorable to building               fertile soil rich in organic matter
