    Cover, Trees for Problem Landscape Sites — Wet and Dry Sites

This publication is available in PDF format only.

To grow, all trees require air, light, water and nutrients. Some trees can survive over a wide range of climatic and soil conditions, whereas others are very site specific. Both wet and dry sites present establishment and growth challenges, making selection of the right tree for the right site very important.
