Native Tree & Grass Plantings

Planting native tree seedlings 

 

Depend on your elevation, aspect, soil conditions, sun/shade, etc.  The seedlings most successful are:

  • Englemann Spruce

  • Doug Fir

  • Aspen

  • Ponderosa Pine

  • Bristlecone Pine

  • Limber Pine

Successful deciduous trees seedlings are:

  • Cottonwood

  • Willow

  • Oak

  • Sumac

  • Cherry

  • Dogwood

  • Currant

  • Sage

Our main goal is to diversify your forests for a healthy ecosystem.  Having a diverse forest is more resilient to disease and insects and creates the dynamics that a forest needs to thrive.

Often as part of our tree clearing operations, we will transplant a tree to a more optimal location for tree diversity.
