  3. 3. IntroductionThis revised (January 2005) native tree and shrub availabilitylist is designed to assist homeowners, landscapers andconservation organizations in locating native planting stockfor wildlife habitat enhancement. It was compiled from amail survey of Connecticut’s registered nurseries. Of therespondents, many indicated that they have native trees orshrubs in stock or would obtain them by special order.Although some of the listed nurseries are strictly wholesalers,trees and shrubs can be ordered from them through your localnursery or garden center. Present this publication to yourlocal retailer and request if plants can be ordered for you.Every plant is native to some location. When a plant is grownoutside of its original location, it is usually classifed as a non-native plant. For example, a Norway maple (Acerplatanoides) is a native tree in Norway, but in the UnitedStates it is a non-native that now comprises a large segmentof the street trees in our cities and suburbs. Some non-nativeplants are invasive and they aggressively compete with nativeplants. Norway maple is a listed non-native invasive tree,which when planted in suburban or rural areas it mayeventually spread to adjacent woodlots, thus occupying spacewhere native trees and shrubs would grow. The adaptabilityand vigor of the Norway maple is undeniable; however, if adisease or insect infestation occurs in a monoculture, a largedie-off may occur. Planting different species is a good bufferagainst disease and insect infestations.By their very nature, native plants have adapted to theclimate of the area, making them naturally hardy. Wildlifehave evolved using them for food, cover and shelter. Properselection, care and placement of trees and shrubs can producea landscape that is both visually attractive and beneficial towildlife.
