Medium to Large Trees for St. Louis

This presentation  suggests and evaluates a wide selection of medium and large Missouri native and nativar (cultivars of native species) trees, along with excellent, non-invasive exotics recommended for the St. Louis area. All of these trees should do well in this area if properly planted in a suitable location.
