The Truckee area has a much different climate than other areas we service due to its altitude. Higher in the Sierra Nevada Mountains near Lake Tahoe, Truckee falls into USDA zones 5b, 6a and 6b. This means plant material needs to be able to withstand temperatures as low as -15 degrees Fahrenheit. Native plants work well in Truckee because they are adapted to it's unique climate.
