his publication lists woody plants that can be used to attract wildlife intourban environments. Many of the species listed may not be available at alocal nursery, so you must be persistent in your efforts to locate them atnative plant nurseries. You might have better luck if you contact native plant nurser-ies that stock some of the more unusual and harder-to-find materials.
Trees, Shrubs, and Vines That Attract Wildlife
Thomas G. Barnes, Associate Extension Professor 
When designing landscapes for urban environ-ments keep in mind the following principles:Use native plants whenever possible.Consider the ecological growing requirements of the plant so it can be placed in a similar habitat.Reduce the amount of lawn area and replace withwoody plants and a variety of wildflowers.Use a variety of different plant groups and types(Figure 1).Use a variety of plant species within each group.Use a variety of plants that will flower and pro-duce fruit at various times of the year.Plant in clusters (Figure 2).Plant conifers or dense tall shrubs on the north andnorthwest locations if at all possible (Figure 3).Follow proper planting techniques (Figure 4).Maintain your plants after planting.
