Want to plant native? Find the best selection of indigenous species for the diverse State of Colorado here at Nature Hills Nursery! Ranging from USDA growing zones 5 to hardiness zone 7 in the south.
Choosing native trees for your State means knowing they will thrive where it is well suited to climate and soil because they originated there! Native selections establish faster and tolerate local growing zones, climate, weather, and anything else your State can throw at them! They need less water once established too! Plus you’ll feed pollinators, songbirds, and wildlife by providing them with a tree they recognize!
Best Colorado Native Trees
Colorado has a vastly wide range of topography! From mountainous to desert, Colorado has it all! Colorado ranges from about 3,350 feet elevation at the lowest point, and between 5,000 and 6,500 feet where the plains meet the Rocky Mountains.
First, find your Hardiness Zone, and then choose any tree that has a range that includes yours! Check with your local County Extension Office for more information if needed and for the many microclimates within these zones.
