Hi, I am a volunteer with the Delbert Hunter Arboretum (Oregon Native Plants). If we wanted to start transitioning our species collection toward species that may be found farther south and east now, what do we need to consider?
Do you know of any studies or people who are working on this that could help guide us, so that we can choose the right species. Do we go by elevation, soil type, or?
Note: the City of Dallas has had to cut off all irrigation water to the city parks, including the arboretum, so we have been forced to confront the future!
Thanks for your help.
