The SelecTree website (selectree.calpoly.edu) guides users through a tree selection process based on tree and site characteristics. SelecTree users often wonder where they can find or purchase certain trees they select. This project represents an initial step to connect SelecTree users with local nurseries to improve appropriate tree selection and availability. Tree and retail nursery listings were gathered from participating wholesale growers. SelecTree records which match wholesaler listings will display a map of retail nursery locations with ties to the participating wholesalers.
