Besides the conifers you'd expect, look for Western water birch (Betula occidentalis), attractive in loose groups along a stream; mountain alder (Alnus tenuifolia), useful for stabilizing soil in moist areas; quaking aspen (Populus tremuloides), which shimmers gold in fall; mountain maple (Acer glabrum), a small multi-trunked tree that thrives in well-drained soil; and mountain ash (Sorbus aucuparia), with ferny foliage and colorful summer berries.
