Fall is for Keystone Trees and Shrubs!
This season is ideal for planting trees and shrubs!
Keystone plants are the special native plants that are essential to keeping the food web functioning. Without them, your local food web can fall apart.
Only about 5% of the local plant species host 70 to 75 % of the local Lepidoptera (butterflies, moths & skippers) species which are important pollinators and food for other animals. Native trees and shrubs are key, including oak, blueberry, and willows which help support hundreds of species of butterflies and moths.*
