Best Drought Tolerant

Once established, many of the trees we provide are drought tolerant. While no tree is drought proof, some are more forgiving than others, such as the Texas Mountain Laurel, Cedar Elm, many of the Oaks, Palo Verde, and Anacacho Orchid. Getting these trees established is key, but once they are, they demonstrate great resilience in times of drought.
