Great Small Trees for Houston

To celebrate The Garden Club of America's Centennial in 2013, The Garden Club of Houston has created a list of great small trees for Houston. The trees were selected based on three criteria: 1) native to our area and likely to thrive with little maintenance, 2) exceptional beauty and the widest possible range of seasonal interest, and 3) habitat benefits, particularly for birds.
