Native Trees and Shrubs for Maine Landscapes—Entire Series Native Trees and Shrubs for Maine Landscapes—Entire Series
Nonnative invasive plants pose a serious threat to Maine's biodiversity. By landscaping with native plants, we can create vegetation corridors that link fragmented wild areas, providing food and shelter for the native wildlife. This collection of bulletins is the product of a five-year research project that evaluated the adaptability of native trees and shrubs to the stresses of urban and residential landscapes in Maine. Each 2-page bulletin covers physical description, landscape use, culture, wildlife value, and maintenance for one native shrub or tree. © 2008 by University of Maine Cooperative Extension.
