Can a monkey puzzle tree live in NFLD (Newfoundland and Labrador)?


I don't know for certain, but I would doubt it. The trees grow well in British Columbia because we have mild winters compared to the rest of Canada. They aren't hurt by the occasional snow that we get. Continuously low temperatures in winter might damage the trees, however. I have heard about some growing in Ontario, but at least some of the monkey puzzle trees there are struggling to survive.
