July 16, 2013 — A new University of Wyoming bulletin suggests to homeowners trees that will survive Wyoming’s climate.
“Scrappy Trees: Raw and Exposed,” B-1243, discusses 19 of the trees that remain from research conducted during the mid-1930s to early 1950s at the Cheyenne Horticultural Field Station. When the station changed its research focus in the 1950s, the trees were no longer pruned, but many healthy trees still flourish.
The UW Extension bulletin provides a general description, hardiness, diseases and insects and landscape value for each of the 19 trees, says author Wyatt Feuz, a UW Extension technician. Co-authors Bridger Feuz and Hudson Hill are UW Extension educators.
