The NDSU Woody Plant Improvement research program involves the breeding, selection, evaluation and introduction of hardy woody plants for the Northern Plains.  This program has introduced over 50 superior woody plants for production and sale with increased disease tolerance and winter hardiness for landscapes throughout the Northern Plains. NDSU woody plant introductions are currently being propagated for sale by commercial wholesale firms in three countries; Australia, Canada and the United States (14 states, including 35 nurseries).
