The list below is a pretty complete list of the woody trees (and shrubby trees and some common shrubs) that grow wild in Vermont. I’ve split the list first by conifers (gymnosperms) and flowering plants (angiosperms), and then nested species by family. For taxonomy, I used Magee and Ahles. I made a few (arbitrary) cuts from the list based on prevalence in Vermont, or lack thereof, so don’t get angry if you don’t find your favorite Euonymus here. For some genera (like Crataegus or Salix) where variation between species is difficult to discern but the genus is easily identifiable I chose not to list individual species. Species with profiles will appear as active links after I create them. Be patient, this process takes time!
* = species not native to Vermont
§ = shrub
spp. = multiple species within the genus
Note: We recently merged this site with another one and so the links currently are not showing up. We’re in the process of updating this page. Stay tuned!
