Planting Instructions and Zones

Planting zones are based on average minimum temperatures. We recommend planting trees and shrubs that are cold hardy to a zone below what is indicated as your zone. For example, in Moscow we suggest planting zone 4 species, even though Moscow is shown to be zone 5. This is to compensate for occasional below-average temperatures.

Windbreak publications include:

  • Planning and Planting a Five-Row Windbreak
  • Trees Against The Wind
