Two studies were conducted to pursue the objectives of this study, namely: (1) outstate variety trials of different species and cultivars of trees, shrubs, and ground covers (2) native prostrate juniper trial for roadside slopes. Several species or cultivars of trees, shrubs, and ground covers were evaluated at 10 trial sites. Plantings were made from 1964 to 1967, evaluated yearly thereafter until 1970, and final evaluations of all trials were made during the 1973 growing season. Those that received consistently good to excellent ratings are listed in Tables 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 for each of the trial sites. Those that failed to survive or perform well are listed in Tables 6, 7, and 8. The prostrate junipers were planted during the Spring of 1970 and planted on 1:3 north and south-facing slopes of Interstate 80 right-of-way two miles east of the Goehner Rest Area. Two named cultivars and five selections were superior when compared with the others studied.
