Storm-Resistant Trees for Mississippi Landscapes

Publication Number: P3111
View as PDF: P3111.pdf

While native vegetation has adapted to a wide variety of environmental conditions, some species are better able to survive storm events than others. Choosing to plant tree species in the landscape that can withstand these natural events makes sense. Storm-resistant trees will make your property safer and reduce future tree maintenance costs. This publication provides an overview of those tree species capable of surviving high wind, extensive flooding, or winter icing.
