List of New Hampshire Native Trees

New Hampshire Native Trees

Our latest count shows 86 native tree species in New Hampshire. The exact number is hard to state because some species are more commonly found in a shrub form, about a dozen are rare, and others can be distinguished by only the most determined dendrologist. 

The following criteria were used to determine inclusion on this list:

  • Native to, at least part of, New Hampshire.
  • Capable of growing to at least 20 feet tall.
  • At least on occasion, must grow as single-stem specimens—some are more commonly found in the shrub form.

Species are split into softwood and hardwood groupings.
