Recommended List of Trees

“Community forest” is the term used to describe a collection of trees growing in and around an urban or suburban area. It’s the trees that dot our yards, line our streets, and fill our parks with beauty and shade. A healthy community forest consists of trees that naturally grow well in our area. In our quest to provide you with tools to best care for your trees, we developed this Recommended List of Trees (~5mb PDF) (part of Truckee Meadows Water Authority’s Water-Efficient Landscape Guide)to help you on your quest to choose the right tree for the right place. Proper tree selection begins with choosing trees that are compatible with our climate.
