As far as shade trees go, the old standards are Red Maple, Golden Maple and Oak, they are extremely hardy and immune from infestations. Laporte has 145 varieties of shade trees and 65 varieties of fruit trees.

When it comes to shrubs, there are few nurseries in Ottawa that have as broad a selection as JA Laporte does. In fact the east end nursery has over 215 varieties of shrubs including junipers, cedars, broad-leaf evergreens and fruit bushes.

Trees and shrubs can be planted can be planted right up until Nov. 15. JA Laporte is currently offering $175 off all their large trees and evergreens, as well as free delivery and installation with a one year warranty.
