Am living in Smithers BC. If you can’t find it on the map it is about half way between Prince Rupert & Prince George.

I bought a house on a corner lot for other reasons and found the garden a challange. The long axis of the house faces north and the other street is to the west. My neighbour to the south has tall trees shading much of my garden. This was also my first time gardening in a z3 area.
My first challange was a cottonwood on the north side shading that side even more. It was also trying to grow into the powerlines. I had it trimmed back. The next year it put on 4ft of growth! That tree had to go. I replaced it with a flowering plum. Hopefully that will stay compact.

I live in: Canada

My zone is: z3 BC
