This study is an attempt to consolidate the information already known about the trees of Utah and to extend our knowledge of these trees. An intensive study was made of the available literature. The tree specimens of the herbaria of the Utah State University, University of Utah, Brigham Young University and the Regional Office of the Forest Service at Ogden were examined. These studies were supplemented with extensive field work in various parts of the state. From this information, keys and descriptions of the genera and species were written and distribution maps for each tree and illustrations of many of the trees made.
