Tree Farm and Nursery

With the assistance of our team of Grande Prairie Trees Specialists, KLon Services is committed to assisting you in finding the ideal trees for your project. Our professionals, who have more than 30 years of experience, will assist your trees, shrubs, vines, and perennial woody plants in thriving and expanding.
In accordance with ANSI standards, we provide advice on tree and shrub selection, planting, and mature tree planting, along with management methods that are supported by academic training.

Here are five reasons why you should plant fast-growing trees in the Peace Region:

  • Energy savings: Planting trees close to your home creates a microclimate that can help keep your home cooler in the summer and cut your winter heating costs.
  • Privacy: Trees can help block out undesirable sounds and provide ideal privacy screens.
  • Protection: We can assist you in accelerating the development of your shelterbelt and providing protection for your yard sooner by using our experienced planting services.
  • Real Estate Value: By planting trees on your property, you can instantly raise the value of your home and its curb appeal.
  • Clean Air: You may reduce pollution by planting trees since they purify the air and store carbon as they grow.

Every tree we sell at KLon is grown in Alberta and has survived a Grande Prairie winter, assuring that they are suitable for the area’s environment. Fruit trees, bushes, vines, and perennial woody plants are other items we sell. To select the ideal trees for your project, come to us immediately.

Q & A’s for our Tree Experts

Q: What trees should we plant in our yard if we live in or near Grande Prairie?
A: It’s a good idea to choose trees that aren’t overdone in your area. For example, in the Country Club lots, you can find a lot of Elm trees, so I wouldn’t recommend Elm if you live in that area. In some of the newer neighborhoods around Grande Prairie, there’s a lot of Ash, Chute Chokecherry trees, Mission Tower Poplars, and Tower Aspens. When everyone plants the same trees, they’re far more likely to share diseases and have insect infestations.

Q: What are some tips for selecting which tree to plant?
A: Consider the following whenever you’re tree shopping:

  • What is the tree for? Shade, color, screening, attracting wildlife, not attracting wildlife… If you want fruit trees, do you want them for eating fresh, canning, or baking?
  • Is the planting site sheltered? Does it get full sun? Is there irrigation available? (You can find some great drought-resistant trees these days!)
  • Come browse our nursery! We have 11,000 trees in 200 varieties so you can browse all sorts of trees. And we have a few unique varieties like Butternut and Catalpas. Different trees have different needs, so we can talk through what’s best for your site.
  • Trees are a long-term investment, so make sure you talk to the experts before you buy.

Q: When is the best time to shop for trees?
A: Some trees are in higher demand and may have limited availability. The best time for tree shopping and landscape sourcing is generally the spring. That’s when we often have the best selection.

Q: What are the most popular sellers at your nursery?
A: The biggest seller with our residential customers is Crab Apple trees. For acreages, the most popular are Poplar trees. Always get a variety of trees—even for your tree line, a variety will help with disease resistance and diversity.
If you’re planning a windrow, 5 or 6 different species is a good number. If you mix in trees with different population growth rates, some will live longer than others and create a healthier windrow.
