#1 - What trees will do well in my area?

When selecting varieties for your land, there are a few things to consider:

#1 - What trees will do well in my area?

Some trees may only do well in southern states, or northern, while some can do well anywhere in the country. Each tree is rated for specific growing zones where it does best.

Follow this link to see a map of the US color coded by growing zone:

Zone Map

Use the map to see what zone you're in. Remember what zone you're in and check it against the zones listed in each tree's description. This will tell you if the trees you're interested in are suited for your location.

For example: Sawtooth Oaks are for zones 5-9, so if your zone is in that range they will do well there, if you're in zone 3 then you're outside the range where they will do well and you should look at other varieties. We have trees suited to every zone in the US.

The far north (Zone 3) can be a challenging area for most mast producing trees. Fortunately, we have varieties suited for even the coldest climates:

#2 - Where will I be Planting?

Its important to pick varieties that are suited to your specific conditions. The area where you’re planting may be an upland area with good drainage and rich soil, or you may be wanting to plant in a shady, low-lying area that stays a little soggy sometimes.

Whatever the case, we’ve got you covered, and we can help you pick trees that will do well on your land.

Every tree has its preferred planting conditions including pH, sunlight, and soil type, listed in its description. Most of our trees like well drained areas that get lots of sun, but we do have varieties that do well in other situations. To make it easy, we’ve created the following collections of products specifically tailored to some challenging planting situations:

#3 - what are my goals?

Some people may only manage their properties for deer, while others want to create habitat for a variety of wildlife like ducks, turkeys, and squirrels.
