Wyoming Tree Owner’s Manual

Do you have questions about trees and tree care but don’t know where to look? The Wyoming Tree Owner’s Manual and Trees For Wyoming brochure together will answer a broad range of tree care and trees selection questions that you might have. The Wyoming Tree Owner’s Manual is a comprehensive guide for tree care information and guidance and covers a wide range of topics including: selecting the proper tree, planting, pruning, how to hire an arborist and tree removal, to name a few.

**Due to the proximity of emerald ash borer and potential for infestation, we are no longer recommending true ash (Fraxinus sp.) as a tree for Wyoming. Green, white and Mandchurian ash trees are the top three trees listed in both the Wyoming Tree Owner's Manual and the Trees for Wyoming brochure.**

The original guide was produced by the USDA Forest Service and became the standard guide for tree owners in the East and Midwest.

With their permission the Wyoming State Forestry Division made several minor revisions and additions to customize the manual to Wyoming. To download the guide, click here

Trees for Wyoming Tri-fold

The Trees For Wyoming brochure lists trees that will thrive in Wyoming’s harsh climate. To date, this is the most comprehensive list of deciduous and coniferous trees for Wyoming and includes several newly developed varieties and cultivars. You may be surprised with the number of trees that can grow in your community. Keep in mind that several factors will determine if a tree survives. The hardiness zone rating for your community is a critical factor and must be considered when choosing a tree. Also healthy nursery stock, proper planting, protection and watering are critical to the survival of a young tree. To download your own brochure, click here
