Sycamore Tree ('Platanus occidentalis') Zones 4, Maximum Height 120ft.
This relative of the maple family is a fast grower, with a large canopy of big light green leaves that spread out and cover the tree. Sycamore trees are often found in areas where there is a lot of moisture, such as along deep river banks, lakes and streams. These trees are not drought-tolerant, so it's important to plant sycamore trees in areas where they will always have water. The high growth period for sycamore trees is from the spring to late summer. Sycamore trees require a moderate amount of balanced fertilizer each fall for best growth. Unlike most trees, sycamores are highly resistant to pollution and salty soils. They also stand up well in inclement weather, such as high winds and hail. The trees grow quickly, which means you should not plant them close to foundations or sidewalks where root systems can crack the structures or pavement. Sycamores are often used in urban areas as a source of shade, as they are tall compared to other trees. The North American sycamore is most common in north america, and are known as the largest of the species. This variety is known for its very attractive varied bark which colors as it matures, ranging from gray-green to whitewashed. Plants are about 3 feet tall.

Kentucky Coffee Tree (Gymnocladus dioicus) Zone 4, Maximum Height 70 ft.
This is a large native American tree found, from New York  to Nebraska and from Minnesota to Oklahoma (zones 4 through 7). It reaches a mature height of 70 feet, with a spread of 50 feet. Established in 2-3 years, annual growth rate averages 12-15 inches. Late appearing foliage emerges in mid- to late spring, comprised of multi-pinnate compound leaves. A single leaf can be 2 to 3 feet long, producing between 70 and 100 leaflets. Fragrant olive-white flower panicles appear in late May in clusters of 8 to 12 inches long by 3 to 4 inches wide. In autumn its leaves turn lime-yellow to golden brown. This tree grows in a wide variety of soil types and is tolerant of poorly drained (wet sites). Disease or insect pests do not damage the lush green tropical-like summer foliage. Bark is distinctively more charcoal gray and shaggy,  as the tree ages.





Shagbark Hickory (Carya ovata) Zone 5, Max Height 75 ft.
This tree features a distinctive, shag covered bark, which becomes more pronounced as it ages.  The leaves of the shagbark are 15 to 25 centimetres long, made up of 5 leaflets on a central stalk. They are green on top, and paler and hairy underneath. The tree's bark separates into long plates as it gets older, which loosen from the trunk and give the tree a 'shaggy' look. Nuts from the shagbark hickory are edible and are 3 to 4.5 centimetres long. They are sweet tasting and are a favourite food of squirrels. The wood is strong, hard and elastic, and makes excellent firewood and makes a good smoking wood for meat. It thrives when planted in rich, well-drained soils but also grows well in both wet and dry locations. It can live for 200 years.


Butternut Tree (Juglans cineria) Zone 3, Max Height 60 ft.
Also known as White Walnut, this relative of Black Walnut is slower growing and much less frequently encountered than its well-known cousin. Its lightweight wood is beige-pink in color. It is also related to the Hickories (including Pecan, another tree with sweet-tasting nuts). Its kernel within the fruit gives it the common name of Butternut, as it is sweet and very oily. The Native Americans reportedly boiled the kernels to extract the oil, which was then used like butter while early settlers pickled the kernels in vinegar.  This is a large spreading native North American tree with compound leaves, giving it a tropical appearance.  It produces large delicious nuts. Butternut is often mistaken for black walnut, but differs in its sticky, elongated fruits, sharply ridged nuts and mature pale gray bark. Butternut has compound leaves like black walnut, but with fewer leaflets (11-17) on a hairy stalk. Butternut trees drop their leaves with the first few fall frosts. It prefers moist to moderately dry well-drained, rich soils in valleys or on slopes and sunny conditions.



Black walnut (Juglans nigrais) Zone 3, Max Height 45ft.
This tree is native to eastern North America and is the tallest of the walnuts, with the potential to reach 100 feet in the wild. Walnut tree leaves are compound and are spaced alternately along the branches. Each leaf is divided into an odd number of small yellowish green leaflets.  A highly prized tree for its beautiful wood and delicious nuts. Walnut seedlings take 7-10 years to fruit, so plant as large of a tree as possible to achieve production sooner. Black Walnut trees need spacing of 30-40 foot intervals and they are self-fertile trees. The walnut fruit is a nut, borne singly or in pairs, and enclosed in a solid, non-splitting green husk. The edible, oil-rich nut kernel is enclosed in a thick, hard, ridged, black shell. The husk is ready to remove if you can dent it with a thumbnail. When you buy walnuts at the store, you are usually buying nuts from the Persian or English walnut tree (J. regia), which originated in Persia. The reason is that the nuts of the black walnut are so hard that hulling the nut to reach the edible fruit is so difficult that no commercial processing exists for black walnut.




Ruby Lace Honey Locust (Gleditsia triacanthos 'Ruby Lace') Zone 4b, Max Height 16ft.
Striking red foliage sets off this very layered tree. The foliage is delicate and casts a brilliant red shade particularly in the direction of a west setting sun. This highly adaptable, drought and salt tolerant ornamental tree will dazzle, whether used as a landscape feature or as a potted patio plant. The young springtime leaves of the Ruby Lace Locust Tree mature to show hues of pink, orange, and purple, just like the beautiful jewel it is named for, before finally settling on a dark, bronzed green by around mid summer. This upright, open, columnar specimen will reach a mature height of 16 ft., and a width of 8 ft. Full sun or partial shade is fine for this thornless beauty, offering you dappled shade and visual appeal for many years.





Sunburst Honey Locust (Gleditsia triacanthos 'Sunburst') Zone 4b. Max Height 45 ft.
A very popular shade tree, valued for its delicate airy, layered, branches and brilliant yellow foliage, which casts an attractive dappled shade. This tree has attractive lime green foliage which emerges gold in spring. The pinnately compound leaves are ornamentally significant and turn an outstanding yellow in the fall. It has a furrowed brownish-green bark and has a broad, spreading, growth habit.  It is seedless, and very tolerant of adverse growing conditions. Sunburst Honeylocust is an open deciduous tree with an upright spreading habit of growth. It provides an extremely fine and delicate texture to the landscape which can make it a great accent feature; just on this basis. This is a relatively low maintenance tree, and is best pruned in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed. Deer don't particularly care for this plant and will usually leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.






Tulip Tree (Liriodendron tulipifer) Zone 4, Maximum Height 100ft.
This magnificent tree is perfect for large yards. Fast growing and spreads 35-50 ft. Abundant yellow tulip-like blooms in late spring! Foliage turns a beautiful golden-yellow hue in fall. It requires well-drained soil and full sun to part shade.










Black Gum or Black Tupelo (Nyssa sylvatica) Zone 4, Max Height 50 ft.
This is a hugely adaptable tree: It will grow in standing water but is also at least marginally drought tolerant, and it will put up with more shade than many of the trees discussed here. Its long taproot makes transplanting problematic, and being dioecious, female trees require a male pollinator to set fruit. It’s not as fast growing as some trees, but its branches’ strong horizontal spread and their over­lapping leaf structure mean that you can enjoy shade from your black gum long before it approaches its mature size. It grows up to 50 feet tall & 30 feet wide. Its flowers provide bees with nectar, its fruit is appealing to birds, and its spectacular purple-red-orange fall foliage is just one more thing to love about this great tree. In addition, black gum has no serious insect or disease problems.

This genus includes the rowans, technically known as Aucuparia.  They reach a mature height of 15 ft tall by 9 ft wide. These are small, graceful trees or shrubs with attractive foliage.  In spring or early summer they produce dense corymbs of frothy white or pinkish flowers, which are followed by fruit varying in colour depending on the species. Many species are apomictic, i.e. self-fertile, and so seedlings are clones of the parent.
