One of the more notable trees at EdgeWater Estates is the sycamore. The first reference to this sacred tree can be found in the new testament of the bible. The sycamore has long been favoured by shipbuilders for it’s “arrow straight” trunk perfect for ships’ masts.

Birch trees also abound at EdgeWater Estates! The white birch has been indispensable for thousands of years to our local native culture. Its bark made the best canoes and it was the covering for a home or hunter’s camp. The bark was folded to make pots to boil food or to make baskets. It was also used as writing paper for maps and sketches and in the 1790s, Mrs. John Graves Simcoe made many drawings on birch bark.

Other indigenous trees that you will find at EdgeWater Estates include the Jack Pine, Red Oak, Red Pine, Sugar Maple and many more!
