Screenshot of Linda Chalker-Scott fact sheet Are native trees and shrubs better choices for wildlife in home landscapes?

Excellent fact sheet from Linda Chalker-Scott (@LindaCS) about that old chestnut, native vs non-native for biodiversity:

Under Action Items for Gardeners, the advice is pretty much “grow a forest garden”!!

TL;DR “the native status of trees and shrubs had no impact on wildlife biodiversity”
