      All you really need is the genus, species and sometimes cultivar name to search about a plant. The Big Three: Genus, Species, and Cultivar. The last three classifiers of botanical taxonomy are genus, species and cultivar. These are the most important and arguably all you need in any plant search, classification, or reference. The pecan / p ɪ ˈ k æ n / (Carya illinoinensis) is a species of hickory native to northern Mexico and the southern United States in the region of the Mississippi River. The tree is cultivated for its seed in the southern United States, primarily in Georgia and Texas, and in Mexico which produces nearly half of the world total. The seed is an edible nut used as a snack and in various recipes.

    Urban Tree Species Directory This is a directory of the tree species that you are likely to see in San Francisco. Not all of these trees are appropriate as street trees and FUF does not plants trees that will not thrive in the urban environment.   This book contains everything you need in selecting trees for a small garden area. Most of the book is dedicated to the directory of over 65 trees/varieties. It has multiple color photos for each tree, one of a mature specimen in a garden scene and then others of interesting aspects of that tree, such as bark, foliage, flowers, fruit, s:

    Ulmus pumila, the Siberian elm, is a tree native to Central Asia, eastern Siberia, the Russian Far East, Mongolia, Tibet, northern China, India (northern Kashmir) and Korea. It is also known as the Asiatic elm and dwarf elm, but sometimes miscalled the 'Chinese Elm' (Ulmus parvifolia).It is the last tree species encountered in the semi-desert regions of central Asia. Atlas of United States Trees: Volume 5 - Florida Introduction. This is the fifth volume of an Atlas with large maps showing the natural distribution or range of the native tree species of the continental United States. In these five volumes, maps of nearly all native tree species of the continental United States have been published.

Nowak, David J. Popular throughout much of the world, the genus Populus, which included about 30 unique species, has become a commonly sighted landscaping tree in the United States. The genus’ species, commonly called Poplars, Cottonwoods, and Aspens, are planted for a wide variety of reasons.

For one, these trees are fast-growing. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, NRCS, there are (not including specie varieties or subspecies) tree species in 81 plant families native to North America.

There are also over non-native tree species that have escaped cultivation. An United States apples nursery catalogue sold of the "best" cultivars, showing the proliferation of new North American cultivars by the early 19th century.

If you are a tree lover and would enjoy a great read dealing with tree ecology and physiology, this is your book. I often use this book to explain tree biology simply but precisely and comprehensively.

It is the most interesting book I have read on the treatment of the individual tree to an educated but non-technical reader. The tree is now commonly found throughout many regions of the world, and it can withstand brief cold spells.

Dreyer, Director, Connecticut College Arboretum and Reviews: 7. A "cultivar" is a cultivated variety of a species. It is reproduced from a single individual in such a way (usually asexual propagation) that traits can be kept.

A low-maintenance street tree cultivar is one that has been selected for superior traits and that will increase safety and/or lower maintenance costs.

Trees. Trees are perennial, woody plants with a single stem (trunk), normally greater than 13 to 16 ft. (4 to 5 m.) in height. Under certain environmental conditions, some tree species may develop a multi-stemmed or short growth form of less than 13 ft.

(4 m.) in height. Eucryphia are justifiably popular in milder areas for their white flowers borne in late summer and, in all but one case, their evergreen foliage. The larger species are among the most attractive of flowering evergreen trees hardy in our area.
