There’s something very special about evergreen trees. Not only are evergreen trees beautiful, but they also withstand incredibly harsh weather while providing shelter from wind and offering privacy. An evergreen tree is truly a utility tree and at Four Seasons Nursery we are proud of our broad selection available for Edmonton area residents.
Look below to see a full list of our available trees and don’t hesitate to call if you have any questions.
Pines are probably the most notable of evergreen tree types. While most of them have long, needle-like foliage and are cone-bearing, not all Pine trees are the same. Each has its own unique characteristics to contribute. Needled evergreen trees make great additions to the landscape, especially when scattered amongst other plantings. They have an extraordinary range of shapes and sizes and are well-adapted to many soil types and growing conditions. The most preferred use of these trees is for ornamental purposes. However, some varieties can offer suitable shade or screening too.
If you love the effect of an evergreen tree and the brilliant colour of a deciduous tree, you can have both with Larch trees. These needled conifers look like evergreens in spring and summer, but in the fall the needles turn golden yellow and drop to the ground.
Douglas Firs are symmetrical, evergreen, coniferous trees that range in mature height from 10 to 80 metres. Their branches grow in a whorl around the tree each year, making it easy to figure out the age of the tree. They have erect cones that face up, instead of down like in so many other evergreen species. Douglas Fir is great as an individual accent tree.
A Spruce is a tree of the genus Picea, a genus of about 35 species of coniferous evergreen trees in the Family Pinaceae, found in the northern temperate and boreal (taiga) regions of the earth. Spruces are large trees, from about 20 to 60 metres (about 60 to 200 feet) tall when mature, and can be distinguished by their whorled branches and conical form. Spruces are excellent for individual planting or as windbreaks and shelterbelts.
