It is possible to grow trees from seed within a decade - the secret is to know what seeds to collect and how to prepare and plant them. This book is a well-illustrated guide to the identification and propagation of native trees.

Native trees grow much faster than non-native trees. But even experienced horticulturists can be mystified about how nature sows and germinates seeds especially acorns and walnuts.

Thanks to this book, any gardener can now grow trees from seeds within as little as ten years. The secrets are to know what seeds to collect and how to prepare and plant them. From their extensive knowledge, the authors guide the reader in identifying native trees, vines and shrubs and describe how to propagate them.

Growing Trees from Seed covers the ecology, abundance, fruit characteristics and edibility of the more than 200 species discussed in this book. There is expert guidance on when to gather fruits, how to extract seeds from the fruit, and when and how to treat and germinate the seed, plus information on transplanting and expected growth rate. Alerts throughout the book identify closely related non-native species now common to various regions.

Many illustrations and descriptions help the reader with plant identification. A seed-treatment guide provides a handy reference.

Among the trees, vines and shrubs covered are:

  • Alders
  • Beeches
  • Berries
  • Birches
  • Cedars
  • Cherries
  • Chestnuts
  • Clematis
  • Dogwoods
  • Elms
  • Firs and pines
  • Hickories
  • Junipers
  • Laurels
  • Maples
  • Oaks
  • Plums
  • Poplars
  • Spruces
  • Walnuts
  • Willows.

There is no better guidebook on how to grow native trees from seed.
