Anybody have experience with Tsuga chinensis? Specifically form and growth habit. Not impressed so far compared to T. canadensis

We started a large number of Tsuga chinensis about 6 years ago from seed. We are trialing these as an alternative to T. canadensis due to their alleged resistance to Adelges tsugae.

My problem is they seem to have a more open, rambling form than T. canadensis and I have a terrible time trying to produce a tight appealing pyramidal shape that consumers want. Have a hard time establishing a strong central leader. They just want to look a Taxus baccata that nobody pruned.

Has anybody grown these and had any luck with getting a decent shape? Am I missing something? I am pruning 3 times per year as I would with T. canadensis.

Thanks

Where to buy tsuga canadensis (eastern hemlock)?

I’m falling short with the local nurseries and big box stores.

I have a shaded white oak forest near a creek and would like to see if I can grow some Eastern Hemlock (in GA outside of Athens).

Hemlock stands near creeks used to be my β€œspecial place” in the mountains so I want to recreate that it my backyard.

Any online sellers I should look to? Thanks in advance!

Do you ever use plants that are native to your state/province/region but not to your specific county? From how far away would you consider a plant to still be "native" to your area?

I'm looking for a shade-tolerant conifer suited to Wisconsin Zone 4b and have been considering Canadian Hemlock (Tsuga canadensis), which is native to my state but not to my county. It's native two counties away from me; would this still be considered a native planting? Would it still offer the suitability & benefits to local wildlife that are characteristic of native plants?

Matrix/Understory Plants for part-to-full shade

I am assembling a mixed shrub/tree border in SW Ohio, Zone 6a under a dappled oak-hickory canopy that is generally moderate in moisture. I am looking for ideas for native (or some well-behaved non-native) lower matrix plants to fill in space between shrubs/understory trees until they mature to suppress weeds and provide a living mulch. It would be an added bonus if some of these could survive after shrubs reach maturity, but not required.

So far, I’ve used the following for matrix plants (from sunnier areas to deeper shade):

  • Deschampsia cespitosa
  • Heuchera villosa
  • Polygonatum odoratum β€˜variegatum’ (non-native)
  • Athyrium β€˜Branford Beauty’ (non-native)
  • Tiarella cordifolia

Shrubs/Understory Trees include or will include (in no particular order):

  • Aesculus parviflora
  • Cephalotaxus harringtonia β€˜fastigiata’ (non-native)
  • Fothergilla β€˜Mt. Airy’
  • Itea Virginica β€˜Henry’s Garnet’
  • Tsuga canadensis β€˜Geneva’
  • Rhododendron β€˜PJM’ (non-native)
  • Hydrangea macrophylla (non-native)
  • Hydrangea quercifolia β€˜Alice’
  • Hydrangea arborescens β€˜Annabelle’
  • Calycanthus floridus
  • Chaenomeles speciosa (non-native)
  • Cercis canadensis volunteers
  • Amelanchier arborea
  • Clethra alnifolia
  • Azalea β€˜Karen’ (non-native)
  • Viburnum acerifolium

Will probably look at native ferns and wild ginger as well since I can propagate from existing stock. Also considering Mitchella repens (anybody have experience with this?)

Carbon Offset & Gridcoin

Even though Gridcoin & BOINC helps science, there's still a carbon cost to power CPUs and GPUs that crunch. I originally got into BOINC because of my interest in fighting climate change, so the emissions for which my crunching is responsible bothers me. I'm hoping to use some of my Gridcoin to grow tree seedlings for a local arborist nonprofit and, if the sub's mods are okay with it, wanted to see if anyone wants to join.

Plan details: I'm putting 4,000 GRC towards seeds, seedling containers, soil, etc. and plan to have seedlings ready for fall planting. From my calculations, it takes about $.60 (80 GRC at today’s rate) on average to grow a planting-ready seedling. Assuming 75% survival rate from seed to maturity, these trees would absorb just under 1 ton of CO2 per year when mature (roughly equal to the amount of carbon it takes to produce the juice to run my rig for a year).

My plan is to donate a section of seedlings to local arborist nonprofits (NC Urban Forest Council, NC Native Plant Society) and plant another section myself in a few places where I have been given permission in central and western North Carolina. Using NC State University’s guide, I’ve selected a variety of native species that are either low maintenance, high growth (read: high survival rate & high carbon sequestration, respectively) or are endangered and seeds are available to purchase. Full list below. I’ll be using biodegradable containers and an organic soil mixture specifically chosen to minimize environmental impact and nitrogen/phosphorus runoff while maximizing healthy early growth.

Eastern Hemlock - Tsuga canadensis

Red Maple - Acer glabrum

Elm, various - Acer rubrum & Ulmus alanta

Pine, various - Pinus echinata / strobus / taeda

Oak, various - Quercus phellos

Magnolia - Magnolia virginiana

How you can contribute:

I didn’t see a rule against this, but will remove this section with apologies if not allowed. I have plenty of experience with plant care and the capacity to handle growing and planting significantly more seedlings. If there’s interest in my project, I’d be delighted to share pictures, updates, and results. If you want to contribute to my project, donations can be made to this address:

SERIOUS: This subreddit needs to understand what a "dad joke" really means.

I don't want to step on anybody's toes here, but the amount of non-dad jokes here in this subreddit really annoys me. First of all, dad jokes CAN be NSFW, it clearly says so in the sub rules. Secondly, it doesn't automatically make it a dad joke if it's from a conversation between you and your child. Most importantly, the jokes that your CHILDREN tell YOU are not dad jokes. The point of a dad joke is that it's so cheesy only a dad who's trying to be funny would make such a joke. That's it. They are stupid plays on words, lame puns and so on. There has to be a clever pun or wordplay for it to be considered a dad joke.

Again, to all the fellow dads, I apologise if I'm sounding too harsh. But I just needed to get it off my chest.

Just because it's a joke, doesn't mean it's a dad joke

Alot of great jokes get posted here! However just because you have a joke, doesn't mean it's a dad joke.

THIS IS NOT ABOUT NSFW, THIS IS ABOUT LONG JOKES, BLONDE JOKES, SEXUAL JOKES, KNOCK KNOCK JOKES, POLITICAL JOKES, ETC BEING POSTED IN A DAD JOKE SUB

Try telling these sexual jokes that get posted here, to your kid and see how your spouse likes it.. if that goes well, Try telling one of your friends kid about your sex life being like Coca cola, first it was normal, than light and now zero , and see if the parents are OK with you telling their kid the "dad joke"

I'm not even referencing the NSFW, I'm saying Dad jokes are corny, and sometimes painful, not sexual

Interesting opportunity to acquire young β€œpre” bonsai

Alrighty folks, so new to the game here and I have my sole Japanese Juniper, being kept outside and going day by day slow & steady.

Through a friend of a friend I’ve found someone with 4 β€œpre bonsai” for sale from their personal collection. These trees are a few years old and besides natural growth, not much has been done to them in terms of pruning and wiring. They’ve been through winters here as well (obviously) which is a good bonus too.

My question is which of these in terms of hardiness should I pull the trigger on and get? My thinking is that I’ve always wanted to get into this hobby and for location, prices and conditions of the trees, why not? This seems a great opportunity. My only concern is not to get overwhelmed/in over my head which is why I don’t think I’ll take all 4 of them

Here’s the species offered:

Chamaecyparis obtusa (Hinoki cypress)

Tsuga canadensis (Canadian hemlock)

Buxus sempervirens (Boxwood)

Sciadopitys verticillata (Umbrella pine)

Any advice, direction or knocking of sense would be much appreciated.
