Our Forests



History has the relation to truth that theology has to religion — i.e., none to speak of.
Robert A. Heinlein

Welcome to Sherwood's Forests Tree Farm

We grow and sell Alberta hardy trees throughout central Alberta.

Our customers:

Come visit. I'll show you around the nursery, and around the farm. Even if you don't need trees right now, I'm happy to talk about possibilities with you, show some of my ideas about landscaping. Some say, "Talk is cheap." I go one better: Talk is free.

(If you want to come for a visit, phone us first. Otherwise you may have ask the cat where I am. His command of English is poor, and he's got a thick accent.)

In this section

The SFTF Advantage talks about why our trees are special. What We Sell gives an overview of the types and sizes of what we have. Prices is an overview of typical prices. Not exact, but you can see if a project is possible. How To Buy walks through how to order and buy from us. Warranty outlines how we stand behind our product.

[About Us]

Here you will find who we are, a brief (mercifully brief) story of our origin, how to get ahold of us by almost any method but smoke signal and carrier pigeon, and how to get here.


Start here. These are a bunch of common issues that come up. It will give you a lot of background, and will help you come up with a plan.


Descriptions and pictures of the trees we sell. These pages speak of what I know about the tree, its preferences for soil, light, and water, how fast it grows, shape.


This maybe should be 'Pre-Ordering' or 'What's available this year' This is mostly for people who know what they want, and want to get their dibs in early.


You've got the trees, here's some tips on planting, watering, and so on.

Our Forests

Pictures and text describing my forests, and how they change with the seasons and the years.


On any other site this would be called 'blog'. What an ugly word! I prefer Almanac, which captures the flow of seasons. Notes about what I'm doing, and seeing on the farm. My way of sharing a bit of the beauty and magic of my world.


Sites and places I've found useful. Some are quite technical, some are links to suppliers with stuff that's hard to find.

I dislike sites with so many links that you find yourself wandering in circles. Navigation here is in a hierarchy, much like the folders on your computer. General stuff near the top level. Specific stuff a few layers deep. At any point, the menu items in white show you where you are in the directory.

If there is a right-pointing arrowhead, there are more topics underneath. If it's just a ball, then you are at a 'leaf node.' You've bottomed out.

If you have questions, comments, suggestions, rants, or raves; if you want to be emailed with my current inventory when it becomes available; if you just want to know when major updates have happened, drop me a line.
