Choosing native trees for your State means you will know your tree will thrive where it is well suited to climate and soil because they originated there! They need less water once established. Native selections establish faster and tolerate the changing climate, weather, and anything else your State may have to offer.

Feed pollinators pollen and nectar, seeds for songbirds, and provide shelter, food, and forage for a wide variety of wildlife like the State Bird - The Scissor-Tailed Flycatcher!

Best Oklahoma Native Trees

Oklahoma has a wide range of habitat, from the Rocky Mountain foothills to Cypress swamps, Tall, Mixed, and Short grass prairies, hardwood forests, to Pine-covered mountains. The hot summers and cold winters show off the range of USDA growing zones 6 to 8.

Find your Hardiness Zone, and choose a 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.

Best Native Evergreen Trees For Oklahoma

The native coniferous evergreens and broadleaf evergreens in Oklahoma add color to the winter landscape because they keep their leaves year-round! Also ideal as privacy, slow the wind, stand up to storms, and help block the drifting snow.

Native Flowering Trees to Grow in Oklahoma

Feed pollinators and hummingbirds nectar and pollen they evolved alongside in your State like the Eastern Redbud tree - giving you that burst of early spring color that is so badly needed after a long, dreary winter! Many of these trees are host plants for native pollinator larvae too!
