Fruit trees – Best species and prices

Fruit trees - Best species and prices

There are many advantages to having a fruit tree in your own backyard. Growing your own fruit is a great source of pride, and you’ll have access to tasty, fresh fruit of excellent quality.

arbre fruitier quebec

Some species of fruit trees grow very well in Quebec, despite our particular climate. Opt for a species that is hardy enough for your region to ensure that it will survive the winter.

Some species, such as avocado, banana and lemon trees, are not compatible with Quebec’s harsh winters.

Apple, pear and plum trees, on the other hand, are species that adapt perfectly to Quebec’s climatic conditions.

Let’s discover together the best species of fruit trees to plant in your garden.

Fruit trees: the best-known species

The pear tree

Different varieties of pears can be grown with ease in Quebec. Before settling on a particular species, make sure you know what conditions it needs to flourish.

If you have limited space available and can only plant one tree, you’ll need to opt for a species that is self-fertile, i.e. able to pollinate itself.

Self-sterile species, on the other hand, require the presence of another pear cultivar nearby to ensure pollination and fruit harvesting.

arbre fruitier poirier

Sunlight is of vital importance to the proper growth of a fruit tree.

Generally speaking, pear trees need full sunlight for optimum growth. The height of a mature pear tree is usually 10 meters.

Harvesting and storage

Pears can be harvested from mid-August to September. Some of the latest species will be grown at the end of September.

It’s best to pick them when they’re not fully ripe, as they don’t ripen well on the tree, ripening from the inside out.

A few days or even weeks after picking, the pear tends to become softer, juicier and tastier.

Shelf life varies from one species to another: while some, like Krazulya, can be kept for only one or two weeks after harvesting, others, like Southworth, can be kept until February.

A pear tree can live up to 200 years!

The apple tree

It’s no secret! Apples grow very well in Quebec, making them ideal for home cultivation.

The apple tree prefers full sun. Make sure you find an ideal spot for it to grow and produce. At maturity, apple trees reach a height of 7 metres.

Even if the apple tree is self-fertile, it will always offer better production if accompanied by an apple tree of another variety.

For example, September Ruby and Sweet Sixteen are self-fertile, but will produce higher yield s if they are close to a pollinator.

Harvesting and storage

Apples can be harvested from mid-August to the end of October.

While it’s best to harvest some species without delay to avoid softening, as is the case with Railroad, some species, such as Collet, gain in flavor after a period of frost, so don’t harvest them too early.

Many varieties can be stored in a cool place for several months and will still be delicious to bite into.

Other apples have a poor shelf life and tend to soften quickly if left on the tree too long, or if not eaten quickly after picking.

So it’s best to process them before they go bad. Juices, compotes, pies and croustades are some of Quebec’s favorite ways to transform them.

The plum tree

Plum trees don’t just give you tasty fruit when you pick them. At flowering time, around mid-May, you’ll witness a spectacular bloom that will please your eyes as much as your nose.

Indeed, the pretty, fragrant white flowers are splendid and will give you a second reason for wanting to plant plum trees in your yard.

fleurs pruniers
prunier arbre fruitier quebec

Unlike apples and pears, plums are smaller trees. Height at maturity varies between 3 and 5 meters, depending on the variety.

Like the fruit trees mentioned above, plum trees need full sun to develop properly.

As most plum trees are hybrid species, it will be necessary to plant a black plum or American plum to ensure pollination and fruit production. But since the plum is a smaller fruit tree, it’s easier to plant another species on your land without feeling overrun.

Harvesting and storage

Plums are an early fruit, harvested from August to September.

Delicious to eat when freshly picked, you’ll need to allow for some processing because it’s a fruit with a short shelf life. The Alderman variety has a slightly longer shelf life, but even so, you’ll need to process it to avoid losing your crop.

Think about cooking them in compote, jelly, jam or even syrup.

Fruit trees: lesser-known species


The serviceberry is a small tree that reaches 4 meters at maturity. It produces dark-blue berries similar to blueberries.

Fruit can be eaten raw, but you can also process it in a variety of ways. You can use them in desserts such as pies, muffins and brioches, or transform them into jelly.

To make sure you can harvest the fruit, you’ll need to protect it from birds, which are fond of the berries and may well steal your crop.

You’ll need to protect the branches with nets. After flowering, place the nets on the tree if it’s still small, or on the branches once the tree has reached full maturity.

The saskatoon is an adaptable tree, so it can grow in full sun or part shade.


Aronia is a shrub that produces small black fruits, also similar to blueberries. The maximum height of this shrub is 1.5 metres. It can be planted in full sun or part shade.

However, their rather distinctive taste is not appreciated by all: strong astringency, slightly sweet and slightly acidic. If you’re the type to enjoy dark chocolate, you’ll be more inclined to appreciate the taste of this berry.

Alternatively, you can turn it into jam and jelly or juice, mixed with other fruits.

The camerisier

The camerise is a small fruit that has been gaining in popularity in Quebec in recent years. It can be eaten as is or cooked in the same way as blueberries.

The mature shrub reaches a height of 2.4 meters. As it is a self-sterile species, it should be planted close to a cultivar with the same flowering period, to ensure pollination and the appearance of fruit.

It prefers to be planted in full sun, although it can tolerate a semi-shaded spot.


Blackcurrants, the fruit of the blackcurrant bush, are known for turning into delicious blackcurrant liqueur. It’s a small, sweet fruit that can be eaten as is, or made into jam or jelly.

The shrub can be planted in semi-shade or full sun, but does not tolerate heat very well. It will reach a height of 1.8 metres and can tolerate extreme cold, down to -42 degrees Celsius!

That’s why this fruit-bearing shrub can survive Quebec’s harsh winters.

Quince tree

The quince, whose fruit is the quince, is a shrub that prefers full sun and will reach 2 to 3 meters when mature. It blooms beautifully in May.

Although self-fertile, quince will produce more efficiently through cross-pollination.

cognassier coing arbre fruitier

Quince has a rather bitter taste when raw, but cooked, it will add a tropical flavor to your meals.

It has a delicious aroma and is a fruit of choice for jams and jellies, since it contains pectin, which facilitates solidification.

Cedar hedge – Prices, pruning, maintenance, quotes

The cedar hedge is a particularly popular landscape design with Quebecers. In addition to its aesthetic appeal, it creates a certain privacy within a property.

So, whether you’re looking to delimit a garden, create a privacy barrier or simply add a verdant touch to your landscape, the cedar hedge is a popular choice in Quebec.

In this article, you’ll discover how to plant a cedar hedge or maintain an existing one. We’ll explore its many benefits, the varieties suited to Quebec’s climate, the practicalities of installing them and maintenance tips.

Factors influencing the cost of a cedar hedge in Quebec

In Quebec, the price of a cedar hedge can vary according to several factors. Here are the key elements to consider when estimating costs:

Hedge length and height

The quantity of cedars needed to create the hedge has a direct impact on the price. The longer and taller the hedge, the higher the cost.

Cedar pruning

The price of larger, more mature cedars is often higher, since handling and transporting them is more complex.

Cedar variety

There are different varieties of cedar (and therefore different prices!) on the market.

Soil preparation and planting

If your site requires prior preparation, additional costs will be incurred.

Supply and transport

The cost of transporting cedars from the nursery to your property must be taken into account. Some suppliers include delivery in the total price, while others may charge additional fees.

Get quotes to compare cedar hedge prices

Before embarking on your project, it’s important to get several quotes for the purchase or installation of a cedar hedge. Here are a few tips to help you get the best price:

Identify your specific needs:

Determine the length and height of the hedge you want, and the variety of cedar you prefer. The more precise the information you provide to suppliers, the more relevant and comparable the quotations will be.

Get several quotes:

Contact several nurserymen and landscaping contractors to request quotes. Ideally, try to get at least three quotes so you can compare them.

Ask for specific details:

When requesting quotes, be sure to specify clearly what you expect, whether it’s cedar pruning, ground preparation, delivery or other additional services. This will avoid surprises and hidden costs.

Compare bids fairly:

When comparing quotes, don’t just focus on the total price. Carefully examine the details of each offer, including the quality of the plants, the services included, guarantees and lead times.

Determine the characteristics of the desired cedar hedge

Here are the different elements to consider when determining the characteristics of your cedar hedge:

Hedge height: The height of your cedar hedge depends on a number of factors, such as your desired privacy, any legal or regulatory restrictions imposed by your municipality, and the size of your property. If you want maximum privacy, opt for a taller hedge.

Hedge thickness : The thickness of the hedge is important to create a dense screen and prevent visibility through it. The density of the hedge depends on the cedar variety chosen, the pruning frequency and the plant spacing. We recommend planting cedars 60 to 90 centimetres apart to encourage dense growth.

Hedge shape : The shape of the hedge can vary according to your aesthetic preferences. Cedar hedges can be trimmed to rectangular, conical, rounded or other creative shapes. It’s important to plan the desired shape from the outset, as this can influence the spacing and initial size of the plants.

Environmental conditions : Take into account the environmental conditions in your area. If you live in an area prone to strong winds, a lower, denser hedge may be more appropriate to provide wind protection. If your region has harsh winters, choose cold-hardy cedar varieties.

Maintenance and accessibility : Consider hedge maintenance and accessibility. If the hedge is too high or too wide, it can be difficult to trim and maintain. Make sure you choose a size that matches your maintenance capabilities, or consider calling in a professional if necessary.

Practical tips for trimming a cedar hedge in Quebec

Here are some practical tips for trimming a cedar hedge:

Tools required :

Recommended pruning period :

The ideal time to trim a cedar hedge in Quebec is early spring. This allows the cedars to develop vigorously during the growing season.

Avoid pruning the cedar hedge in late autumn, as this can compromise the cedars’ winter hardiness.

Appropriate cutting techniques :

Before you start pruning, assess the desired shape and size of the hedge. Use ropes or stakes to mark the desired cutting lines for a uniform hedge.

Start by trimming the sides of the hedge in regular, horizontal sweeping movements. Keep the hedge trimmer flat against the cutting surface for straight, clean results.

To cut the top of the hedge, use vertical sweeping movements, starting at the outer end and moving gradually towards the center.

Be careful not to over-trim the hedge, as this can lead to bald patches and weaken the health of the cedars.

Practical tips for maintaining a cedar hedge in Quebec

Regular maintenance of cedar hedges is essential to ensure their health, appearance and growth. Here are some maintenance tips:

Additional maintenance of the cedar hedge :

Watering: Be sure to water the cedar hedge well during dry periods, especially in the first year of planting, to promote healthy growth.

Fertilization: Apply a balanced fertilizer specially formulated for cedar hedges according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.

Weeding: Regularly weed the base of the hedge to avoid competition from weeds that could affect cedar growth.

Regular pruning: Regular pruning is important to maintain the shape and density of the cedar hedge. Prune lightly and regularly. However, avoid excessive pruning, which can weaken cedars.

Pest and disease protection: Watch out for signs of pests, such as aphids or red spider mites, as well as common diseases like cedar rust. In the event of infestation or infection, quickly treat the hedge with the appropriate solutions.

Tree branch shredding – An ecological solution

The latest storms to hit Quebec this winter caused a lot of damage and havoc. Several trees fell and branches were torn off.

Now that spring has arrived, it’s time to clean up after Mother Nature, but how do you get rid of fallen tree branches? By shredding them!

dechiquetage branches

Chipping branches is an interesting option for getting rid of broken branches. A team will come to your site with a specialized machine that shreds branches to clear up clutter.

It’s an efficient, environmentally-friendly way to clean up your grounds, as the chips produced by the machine can be reused in a variety of ways. More on this later in the article.

Why mulch tree branches?

Branches that have fallen after a storm or strong winds are a nuisance and prevent you from enjoying your property to the full.

They can quickly become a source of worry and accident, especially if young children are playing nearby.

Here’s why it’s a good idea to chop up any tree branches that have fallen in your yard.

Picking up all the fallen branches on your property can be a long and tedious job. Why do it yourself?

Hiring a specialist company will free you from having to collect the branches yourself and transport them to a depot.

Save time and energy by requesting your free quotes now using our form. It’s free and without obligation!

Chipping the branches will also allow you to reclaim the space lost because of that pile of wood that’s been lying around for… how long already?

Your garden will look much neater, and you’ll finally be able to use that long-lost space for a pond, pergola or children’s play area.

You’ll be glad to have this long-abandoned piece of land back!

The branches will also eventually rot, making them attractive to a number of invasive species that will be delighted to make them their home. This is the case, for example, with carpenter ants.

They’ll have a merry feast with the branches left behind, and once the feast is over, guess where they’ll head next? Most likely in your home!

So a simple pile of branches can turn into much bigger trouble, so it’s best to deal with them before they decompose.

Hiring a company to chop up the branches on your property
will save you from having to hire an exterminator to get rid of unwanted critters, which can be a much more persistent problem.

amoncellement branches nuisibles

How do I choose the right branch shredding company?

First of all, check with a number of companies that offer branch shredding services. Equipment must be adapted to your needs, and to the size of the branches to be shredded.

Some companies have shredders capable of shredding branches up to 9 inches in diameter, while others have more powerful machines capable of shredding branches up to 12 inches in diameter.

That’s why it’s important to mention these details when you request your quotes. In fact, you can get 3 free shredding quotes from companies in your area right here.

Comparing prices is also an important step when it comes to hiring a company. That’s why we offer a free comparison service that’s sure to save you money on chipping your branches.

Friendly advice from Tree Quotes

Also check that the company has liability insurance. This could save you from having to pay in the event of an incident or breakdown.

How do you reuse shavings from shredded branches?

When branches are shredded, they are ground into small chips. Although some companies send it all to composting sites, it is possible to dispose of it in other ways, giving wood residues a second life.

Depending on your wishes, you can ask the shredding company to leave the wood chips on site for you to reuse, or you can ask them to dispose of them completely.

To help you decide, here are some ideas for reusing wood chips:

Chipping tree branches is a sensible solution because it’s a wood processing method, and the waste produced can have another life.

It’s up to you to decide what to do with it!

Renting a shredder: a good idea or not?

It might occur to you to rent a shredder and do the job yourself. However, the Tree Quotes team does not recommend this alternative.

The teams who come to your home are well trained to work with this high-powered machine.

Don’t forget that some machines can shred branches up to 12 inches in diameter!

Accidents happen so quickly, and can result in very serious injuries. You’ll agree with us that it’s better to avoid taking such a risk, and to entrust this work to a real team of experts.

When it’s time to perform a dangerous task such as felling a tree or chipping branches, it’s best to call in tree-felling professionals to ensure a job well done, in complete safety.

Tree trimming in Quebec – Prices and methods

If you’ve recently had a tree felled and intend to use the plot of land it once occupied to build a garden shed or swimming pool, you’ll need to remove the stump and root system.

essouchage arbres abattus

However, this can be hard work, especially if the tree is mature and therefore deeply rooted in the soil.

Calling in an arboriculturist would be a possibility to consider. Tree trimming is one of their many areas of expertise, as is tree pruning, trimming and felling.

Hiring an expert in your field is always a good solution when you want to achieve good results.

Why grub up a felled tree?

There are several reasons for stump removal after a tree has been felled.

As mentioned, if you wish to use the part of the land on which your tree used to stand, you absolutely must remove the stump to enable you to use your entire plot.

Whether you’re building a garden, a garden shed or a pergola, if the stump is still in the place where the tree was cut down, it will probably prevent you from taking full advantage of the ideal spot for your project.

If you’ve felled the tree because it was diseased or infested, it’s possible that the stump can still transmit the disease to surrounding trees. It is therefore imperative to remove the stump of a diseased tree to prevent the spread of the disease, or a new infestation in the event of the presence of undesirable and devastating insects.

The remaining stump could also attract insects to settle there. Nasty carpenter ants, for example, could come and have a real feast. Once the party’s over in the stump, they might head for your house, and trust us, you don’t want that to happen!

essouchage eviter insectes indesirables

As the stump that hasn’t been pulled out continues to grow and extend its root system, it could cause problems for your foundation. Foundation repairs can cost a small fortune, and we’re sure you’d like to avoid them. It really would be best to save yourself the trouble.

The tree may also start growing again, as the stump continues to feed through the roots, and you may soon find yourself with a new shoot that will soon take the place of the old one. If the stump and roots are not removed properly, there is a real possibility that the tree will grow back.

How is grubbing carried out?

The best way to remove a tree stump is to call in an arborist, who will bring his machinery to remove the stump safely and completely.

Before proceeding with grubbing, it’s important to find out if there are any buried cables or pipes near the stump to be removed.

is a free service for locating underground infrastructures. Let them know you’re broken by simply making a location request directly on their website.

Mechanical stump removal, also known as trimming, is the best way to ensure that the stump no longer causes damage to your property.

The arborist will come to your home with a chipper to remove the stump efficiently. The trunk and underground trunk will be professionally chipped. The hole is then filled with the remaining wood shavings and soil to avoid any risk of subsidence or injury.

You should never use chemicals such as sodium chlorate or bleach to remove a tree stump, as this could contaminate your land.

If you have a garden in your backyard, the soil will be contaminated, as the chemicals spread via the water table. What’s more, there’s no guarantee that the stump will never grow back.

Nor should you attempt to burn the stump. The risk of fire spreading through the root system is high, and there’s no way of knowing how far it might spread. This method must be avoided at all costs.

If the stump is small, you could have it removed with a winch and chains, but this method could cause damage to your property.

How much does stump grinding cost?

Obviously, this depends on the size of the stump to be removed and access to it.

For a small, easily accessible stump, you could very well get away with a $100 bill.

However, the larger the stump, the longer it will take to shred, and the higher the bill. Location and accessibility play a major role in the total cost. If the stump is very large and really difficult to access, then it could cost you $1,000 to have it removed.

The arboriculturist, the specialist you need for your trees

An arborist does much more than just grub trees; he’s an expert you should consult for all questions related to the health of your trees.

He can inspect your tree to determine if there’s a way to treat it, or if you’ll unfortunately have to have it cut down. In the first case, he’ll show you how to care for it and give you valuable advice on how to preserve it. In the second case, he can make an appointment with you to arrange for the tree to be felled.

Arborists can also prune tree branches, which means removing dead branches from a tree to prevent them from rotting. Falling branches can be dangerous if the tree is close to a pedestrian thoroughfare. In a case like this, prevention is better than cure.

In short, when in doubt about how to care for your trees, consult an arborist.
