Native Trees

Now and in years to come...

What counts as native? Anything that grows somewhere in Alberta? Anything that grows in my local eco zone (Aspen Parkland, where I live) Anything that grows in the particular environment where I'm at?

I take the first approach. This stretches things toward the drier, warmer end somewhat, but it's likely to get drier and warmer.

Alberta can be divided up into major climate zones:

Alberta Native trees & shrubs.

This list is not complete. There are additional shrubs that I'm still learning about, but that aren't common in Aspen Parkland. There are a raft of willows that are difficult to tell apart. Entries in bold are ones I normally carry, although some of them are available in very limited nubmers as I harvest them wild from my own woods.
