I’m wondering if any of y’all have had experience growing either of these trees in Alaska.
I’ve found cultivars of each species hardy down to zone 4 or 5, which is just about what I experience in west Anchorage.
With the warming climate, I am less worried about the cold, but more concerned about light levels and the short growing season.
Both of these trees grew well on my family’s dacha in western Ukraine, which has a climate somewhere between Anchorage and Fairbanks, but is not as far north.
If you have any advice or even incidental reports, I would be happy to hear them.
Otherwise, I will try my best and let everyone know if my efforts are successful 🙂
