- About Us
Here you will find information on purchasing, identifying, collecting, and growing your own native trees and shrubs. The Macphail Woods nursery has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years, and has become a major source of native plants for other habitat restoration projects around Prince Edward Island. These have included many school ground plantings and riparian zones around streams.
At Macphail Woods, we offer many free events over the course of the year, from owl prowls to plant identification workshops to stargazing outings. We also offer in-depth paid programs for both kids and adults.
Looking to spruce up your yard? Own a woodlot that needs more diversity? Want to create a hedgerow or windbreak to protect your property? Trying slow erosion along your shore while helping to create more wildlife habitat?
Macphail Woods has over 20 years of native plant landscaping experience in every kind of Island habitat, from urban yards to secluded woodlots. We offer a variety of species and sizes and can help select a mixture of trees, shrubs, wildflowers, and ferns that will thrive, enhance biodiversity, add food sources, create privacy and much more.
