Biodiversity and permaculture
Ecosystems, forests, backyards and people thrive on diversity. Here you will find trees perfect for adding diversity to a food forest, orchard or just your backyard. Some are native forest trees and others are smaller bushes, and many have several uses and benefits alongside their fruit. Most of them are very beautiful and are prized for their ornamental qualities. All are highly beneficial for local wildlife, and several are adaptable to a range of different conditions. Along with their edible qualities, these trees have a range of uses in different domains: landscaping, natural medicine, erosion control, living fences, biofuel and high-quality timber.
To choose the trees that will grow well for you, the first step is to know the hardiness zone in which they will be planted. If you do not already know your zone, you can find it here by writing the name of the municipality in which your trees will be planted.
When you select your zone, each variety that is hardy in your area will be identified, to make your choice easier.
