Where could I buy a yellow wood tree here in Toronto. This is for my front yard.
Thank you for contacting the Toronto Master Gardeners
This seldom used deciduous tree makes a striking specimen in any garden with its beautiful display of fragrant white flowers. Yellow Wood, Cladrastis kentuckea has a rounded canopy and can reach 30-50’ tall.
As to where to purchase this tree, you could try your local large nursery. If they do not have the tree maybe they are able to order it for you. If you have no luck there, you could try Landscape Ontario’s “Find a company” service http://landscapeontario.com/find-a-company . This website gives you a list of nurseries in your area.
