Native plants and trees are already adapted to our local Upstate conditions, so, once established, they generally need little to no fertilizer or irrigation to thrive. They help reduce and filter stormwater runoff, which helps keep our rivers and drinking water clean. Plus, native plants provide natural habitat for a variety of local bird, wildlife, and pollinator populations.
Urban hardy native species that do well in our area include (but are not limited to):
Includes medium to large canopy trees
Small trees that are by definition less than 25'
