Tips for Selecting Trees to Plant in Western Montana

Montana’s incredible natural flora and fauna are the main reason many of us call it home and that thousands of tourists visit each year. Though resilient to the harsh winters, wildfire, and periodic drought, the forests and streams that contribute to the natural beauty of the Missoula Valley are sensitive to disruption.

Protecting and supporting the local ecology is essential, and every homeowner or business can play a role. We suggest planting native species, such as:

  • Ponderosa Pine
  • Cottonwood
  • Sandbar Willow
  • Chokecherry
  • Douglas Hawthorn
  • Beaked Sedge (Aquatic)
  • Cattail (Aquatic)

Finally, avoid introducing or propagating invasive plants like St. John’s wort, Norway maple, spotted knapweed, or leafy spurge.
