In 2007, several UW Extension educators attended a horticultural tour of the Cheyenne Horticultural Field Station as part of training for the Profitable and Sustainable Agricultural Systems team. The focal point was the trees of the field station. The trees were planted from the mid-1930s to the early 1950s for research purposes on the station. In the 1950s, the station changed its focus and the trees were left to fend for themselves. This bulletin consists of a compilation of pictures taken during that 2007 tour and pertinent information to help in tree selection. The pictures are of the raw and exposed trees. That is to say that since the late 1950s, they had not been pruned or received any other special care. The uniqueness of this publication is that the trees are seen at their worst yet they are amazing trees that can add variety and stability to a landscape.
