    What tree is native to your area?

    I'm not talking about your state tree. I mean a tree people might not find terribly attractive but it thrives in your locale.

    For instance, Oklahoma has a black jack. It's a scrub oak and not popular, in fact many go to great lengths to cut them down to make way for more appealing trees. It does well here no matter if we have drought, long hard winters or floods.

    I personally like rustic foliage and would like to hear about yours.

    We have palo verde (green stick) - tiny leaves with great bright yellow flowers in the spring - a definite desert tree. Then there is the Saguaro - not sure if it is classified as a tree. They native only  in a very limited area in the SW USA and in  Israel. They are large in scale - 30-60+ feet in height and many tons in weight. We once had one fall in the side yard and we felt it inside the house. Everyone poured out to find out what happened.

    Eastern red cedar (Juniperus virginiana) is native to Virginia. It's a scrubby survivor of heavy traffic, neglect, and pollution. But it won't fit in the landscapes of those who seek ornamental trees which are pruned into lollipop looks. As for me, though, I admire its natural shape and tenacious will to survive.

    Ponderosa pines, and larch trees are everywhere.  Also Douglas fir, poplar and a few aspen trees.

    In our area, there are acacia tree, mango tree, tamarind tree, star apple tree and other tropical trees. I love them all. I used to climb those trees when I was young.

    I am new to Virginia and, as of yet,I do no know all of the trees that are indigenous to this area. Nevertheless I am completely knowledgeable of trees native to the Pacific Northwest, especially California.I am very knowledgeable about Redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens and Gigantea) as well as, Heritage Oak Trees of the central belt of California. I owned a tree service for over thirty years, specializing in saving dying trees.
    I am happy to answer any questions you may have about above mentioned topics.

    Though I live on the edge of a city on the slope of a steep hill, heading out into the countryside, there is plenty of tree life around us.
    A variety of trees grow in the hedgerows struggling to maintain their own 'home' on the edge of the city. Though the 'struggling' trees never seem to make it to great height, there is a variety to interest the passerby - young oak, ash as well as the blackthorn, the sloe and whitethorn bush/tree.
    Thanks for the question.
