" If a tree dies, plant another in it's place. "   - Carolus Linnaeus

No other location in the region offers the diverse selection of trees found at the Yellowstone Arboretum on the grounds of ZooMontana. Here you can find the common and uncommon. Now, as part of the "Plant Select" program (see at bottom of page), the Botanical Society and Arboretum offers a chance for the public to witness first-hand the growth and survival of new species on the grounds. We've included some of that diversity in the special selections below and a common list of all the species you can find during your tree-hugging adventures at ZooMontana !

Sour Cherry Tree

Located at the upper Tiger viewing area

Prunus cerasus is a species of Prunus in the subgenus Cerasus (cherries), native to much of Europe and southwest Asia. It is closely related to the sweet cherry ( Prunus avium), but has a fruit that is more acidic. The tree is smaller than the sweet cherry (growing to a height of 4–10 m)

Kentucky Coffee Tree

Located just north of the Bald Eagle exhibit

The Kentucky coffeetree, Gymnocladus dioicus, is a tree in the subfamily  Caesalpinioideae of the pea family, native to the Midwest and Upper South of North America. The seed may be roasted and used as a substitute for coffee beans; however, unroasted pods and seeds are toxic. The wood from the tree is used by cabinetmakers and carpenters.
