Find the best selection of native species for the State of Idaho here at Nature Hills Nursery and support native habitats in the Gem State!

Selecting trees native to your State ensures your tree is well suited to your climate, evolved alongside their local pollinators and birds that recognize these sources of shelter and forage.

Native trees need less water once established, and establish faster and tolerate the fluctuating climate, weather, and anything else your State can throw at them.

Best Idaho Native Trees

Idaho is a diverse state with forests, wetlands, deserts and grasslands, where the state bird, the Mountain Bluebird, loves to roam. Idaho is USDA growing zones 3 in the north to zone 7 in the south, featuring cold winters and pleasantly warm summers.
