Ohio Native Trees

Ohio has a lot of great native trees, but we like to plant the trees that are high wildlife value trees.  These are trees based mainly on the value of their fruits, seeds and or nectar used for food for wildlife, and the relative number of species using the plant for food.

Berries on Amelanchier laevis above.

Berries are edible and can be used to make jams, jellies and pies.

Tilia americana's flower's below:

When a tree is in full bloom, bees often visit in such abundant numbers that humming can be heard many feet from the tree. Honey made from these flowers is a prized gourmet food item. Flowers have also been used to make tea. Flowers give way to nutlets that are attached to narrow bract-like strap-shaped wings (to 5” long).  Nutlets ripen in late summer.  Winter twigs and buds are red. A syrup may be made from the sweet sap in somewhat the same manner as maple sugar.
