Which Search to Use?
If you want information on a particular tree and know the name, use the name search on the home page and at the top of every page, following the guide above. If you want a list of trees that match certain site or character criteria, use the attribute search form.
It is always best to start with the climate zone for the planting area. USDA Hardiness Zones and Sunset Climate Zones are available in UFEI. Find your USDA Hardiness Zones with a zip code search. Use a Sunset Western Garden Book to determine your Sunset Climate Zone. In addition to the climate zone, select two or three other criteria that are of interest to you. Selecting too many categories could easily rule out all trees. If your initial search brings back too many trees, return to the form and narrow your search with an additional category.
