Impressive Tree Types for Large Properties

By: albertaarb - March 30, 2016

If you have a large property and are looking for beautiful trees that will match your yard's scale, Alberta has a good selection of trees to choose from. Both deciduous and coniferous tree types in Alberta can soar high above our heads. Here are some Albertan tree varieties you may want to consider:

White Birch

While these trees are not quite as tall as some of the other trees on this list, they make up for it with their slim elegance. A grove of these graceful trees with their pale bark and tapered leaves can create a strong impression. The Alberta Forest Genetics Resource Council (AFGRC) states that these trees can grow to up to 20 metres in height.

Lodgepole Pine

According to the AFGRC, the lodgepole pine is tall and slender, reaching up to 30 metres "or more" in height. This tree's straight trunk and dense clusters of needles provides a trim presence that will not crowd your property.

Aspen Poplar

The AFGRC reports that the aspen poplar also grows to up to 30 metres in height. The aspen poplar's oval, sharp-tipped leaves are known for their tendency to flutter in the wind. Its bark starts out smooth and greenish white, roughening and darkening somewhat over time.

White Spruce

If you are looking for an impressively grand tree, try the white spruce. These evergreen giants can get to be up to 45 metres tall, according to the AFGRC, and their trunks can reach up to a metre in diameter, making them some of the largest of the tree types native to Alberta. With rough, greyish-brown bark and stiff needles, white spruce are wilder and more imposing than the other trees on this list and can take up a lot of space. These trees make for valuable habitats for wildlife.
