The Red Alder is a medium-sized broad-leaf tree native to west coast of USA,growing up to about 60ft tall. Trees growing in the forest develop a slightly tapered trunk extending up to a narrow, rounded crown. Trees in the open have crowns that start near the ground giving it a broad cone shape.
The leaves on the Red Alder are bright green above and greyish underneath. They are oval-shaped, with pointed tips, and coarsely toothed edges that tend to curl under. The hair-covered veins form a ladder-like pattern. Leaves stay green until they drop off.
The current height of our Red Alder trees is approximately 30-50cm and they can be planted out all year round.
