The table on the next several pages summarizes a great deal of tree selection information for Utah. Nearly all trees that are commonly planted plus many that are fairly rare are included. All native trees also are included, since many of these may make good landscape plants but are rarely planted. The information included in this table is based on the knowledge of the authors or has been obtained from reliable sources. Little cultural information exists for some species, however. If you have experience growing any of these trees, particularly those that are less commonly planted, we welcome your input.
