Which Trees are Available?
Trees and shrubs are grown at the CSFS Nursery for their demonstrated conservation characteristics and are suitable for Colorado weather conditions.
A Buyers Guide is available through the CSFS Nursery (970) 491-8429, that can provide useful information about growth form, crown density, size, drought resistance, cold hardiness, growth rate, life span, elevational range, soil conditions, possible insects and disease problems, wildlife value, seasonal color and other information. The Buyers Guide (1.8 MB PDF) also can be downloaded.
This information also has been condensed and combined with other information into the easy-to-use Species Suitability Guide for Colorado. Additional information includes cold hardiness, drought resistance, alkali tolerance, windbreak suitability, wildlife suitability, mature height, growth form and elevational range.
