Native Trees For The State of Vermont

Want to help keep native trees growing in your state? Find the best selection of indigenous species for the State of Vermont here at Nature Hills Nursery!

Vermont is known for its scenic rolling Green Mountains which are a part of the Appalachian Mountain system, giving this state its nickname - the Green Mountain State. Get ready to tap your own Sugar Maples because the state of Vermont is covered in them! Maple syrup and amazing fall color are what this state is known for! The official state bird is the Hermit Thrush, whose song can be heard carrying through the hardwood and evergreen forests.

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 local growing zones, climate, weather, and anything else your State can throw at them.

Plus you’ll feed pollinators, songbirds, and wildlife by providing them with a tree they recognize!

Best Vermont Native Trees

New England's reputation for a rugged climate, weather, and lots of snow, Vermont's weather is relatively mild with plenty of year-round precipitation and seldom sees drought.

Ranging from USDA growing zones 3 to 5, Vermont lies in a transition zone between the northern boreal forests to the southern deciduous forests. The northern hardwood mix of Beech, Birch, and Maple makes up 71% of the state.

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.
