[Note from Quercus macrocarpa species description] I think that bur oak is the largest, most majestic of all oaks in this region. It naturally occurs on floodplains, and is often the only tree in dry, mid-western prairies that frequently burn.
[Part of note from Tsuga canadensis species description] Also known as Canada hemlock. There is no more graceful looking tree any any age in eastern North America, and few better species for screens and hedges. But site selection for eastern hemlock needs careful consideration as it is not as tolerant of poor conditions as are many other conifers. Dozens of cultivars have been selected primarily for dwarf or pendulous forms.
