Treasure Valley Tree Selection Guide


The Guide

The Treasure Valley Tree Selection Guide, developed by over twenty public, private and non-profit industry partners and facilitated by Mary Jane Marlow with Canopi Design, provides a comprehensive guide of recommended tree species for planting in various landscape settings throughout our region.

The Treasure Valley recognizes the value of our community trees, a cumulative benefit of over $9 million each year in the form of clean air, clean water, reduced energy use, enhanced property values and extensive human health benefits! In order for us to recognize these benefits, it is important that we plan for and plant the right trees and cultivate them to maturity.

Who can use the guide

The guide can be used by homeowners, municipal staff, planners, builders, landscape designers and installers and the nursery industry. We encourage everyone planting trees in the Treasure Valley to use this guide to select and plant the right tree in the right place so that it will thrive in your landscape setting for years to come. Most of these trees are generally available at local nurseries.
