Tree Species Selector

Please Read:

  • Hover over the help icons next to the criteria for more information.
  • The more criteria that are completed, the more specific your tree list will be, however, if you select too many criteria this could give ‘NO RESULTS FOUND’.
  • Fields should be left blank if you do not know all the information about your site or desired tree species.
  • Selecting criteria such as ‘soil salt tolerance’, ‘salt spray tolerance’ and ‘branch breakage susceptibility’ will either significantly reduce your tree list, or give ‘NO RESULTS FOUND’.
  • Although tree selections are currently suited to eastern Canada (with Ontario-specific pest and disease notes), efforts are under way to customize the website for central Canada (with Alberta-specific pest and disease notes). Please visit the Tree Glossary for more information.
