Use this page to find a complete list of plants that grow in each state or province as per the USDA database. If a plant does not appear it does not mean it doesn't grow in that state or province, it just means it isn't in the USDA database as such.

Farming the Woods | Temperate Forest Farming & Permaculture Strategies We promote Forest Farming and Mushroom production and share information so others can achieve success cultivating non-timber forest products. With this in mind, please enjoy the following articles, audio, and video presentations. Our campaign video explains the book and why we need your gift to promote the best practices in sustainable forest farming. Harvesting wild leek is not sustainable except at very modest levels… high-value woodland plants (Ramps included) are in danger of being overharvested, and because we have degraded our forests down so much, enjoying the food and medicinal aspects of these plants in the future may require us to grow them.
Global Justice Ecology Project: GlobalJusticeEcology.org , Hinesburg, VT Israeli biotech firm says its modified eucalyptus trees can displace the fossil fuel industry by John Vidal, environment editor, The Guardian, Thursday 15 November 2012 GM eucalyptus trees at five-and-a-half years old, grown in a field trial. FutureGene claims GM species grow thicker and faster than the natural plant, making it possible to be grown for energy generation.It's a timber company's dream but a horrific industrial vision for others: massive plantations of densely planted GM eucalyptus trees stretching across Brazil, South Africa, Indonesia and China, engineered to grow 40% faster for use as paper, as pellets for power stations and as fuel for cars. The prospect is close, says Stanley Hirsch, chief executive of the Israeli biotech company FuturaGene. All that is missing, he says, are permissions from governments for the trees to be grown commercially, and backing from conservation groups and certification bodies.

The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation The Fruit Tree Planting Foundation (FTPF) is an award-winning international nonprofit charity dedicated to planting fruitful trees and plants to alleviate world hunger, combat global warming, strengthen communities, and improve the surrounding air, soil, and water. Our programs are at the forefront of a global movement towards sustainability by strategically donating orchards where the harvest will best serve communities for generations, at places such as public schools, city parks, low-income neighborhoods, Native American reservations, international hunger relief sites, and animal sanctuaries. FTPF’s groundbreaking work has influenced governments, corporations, and households to plant more fruit trees.

TAKE ACTION HERE NOW! Typhoon Haiyan, believed to be the biggest storm on record to make landfall, clearly demonstrates the risk posed by extreme super storms intensified by abrupt climate change. Yet the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) – the United Nations science body that assesses the state of climate science – is failing to carry out a comprehensive risk assessment that takes into account amplifying positive... TAKE ACTION HERE NOW! Next week California is to decide whether REDD+ [search] forest carbon offsets – which include funding for first time industrial logging of old-growth forests – is worthy of inclusion as a carbon credit under the state’s carbon markets.
