    Need help finding native trees for CA

    The Tree Database was very helpful in finding trees that are *hardy* in my zone (8 and 9) but I'd like to find trees that are also native to California and not just those that will do well here. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance! :P

    Go here for trees native to CA:
    http://selectree.calpoly.edu/searchresults.lasso

    Go here to pick what tree characteristics you would like:
    (Make sure you select yes under: TREE CHARACTERISTICS ;
    California Native and your hardness zone if you wish)

    Also keep in mind that California has a lot of different environments in it, and a native tree that will grow well in one area may do very poorly just 20 miles away. Sometimes the differences (especially moisture regime) aren't really reflected in the hardiness zone (which mainly tells you about minimum temperatures).

    Ah, thank you, Treeman! That's exactly the kind of database I was looking for!

    And, saccharum, I will be paying attention to things like moisture and soil pH. At least now I have a list of 25 native trees that I can start deciding what might work best where.

    Thanks again to both of you!
