Red Alder from the North-west American coastal belt this hardy deciduous pioneer is a natural companion to several familiar British grown conifers such as Douglas fir and Sitka spruce. Provenances of red alder from the Cascade Mountains and British Columbia do well here. It makes a wind firm and pleasant looking edge to coniferous mono cultures. It also fixes atmospheric nitrogen around its roots. In America red alder timber is highly prized for furniture but in Britain it is usually unable to achieve good enough board widths. Seed is freely produced and propagation is an easy matter. Plants will grow on any soil including acid upland peats.
