Woodland Plant Database

Use this tool to learn about and select appropriate plants for your restoration project.

This database allows you to search for plants in a variety of ways:

  • Search by Keyword is best for finding species by common name (e.g. white oak), scientific name (e.g. Quercus alba) or by plant characteristics.
  • Advanced Search provides more flexibility. It allows you to use drop down lists such as plant height, soil moisture, woodland community, etc. to search for specific plants and/or plant communities.
  • Glossary of Terms provides information about woodland species and their characteristics.
