View Eastern Seed Zone Map

Draft Map

We've prepared a draft of the eastern seed zone map! You do not need to download Arc GIS software to view the map, and editing privileges are reserved for our core group. We had previously provided an online form to solicit feedback on the delineation of specific counties, delineation of subzones for plants, and delineation of other areas that might warrant a separate seed zone. Certain ecological boundaries that don’t adhere to county lines (such as the north shore of Lake Superior, for example) may need to be delineated on a case by case basis. Our ultimate goal was to produce a seed zone map and associated data file that is freely accessible to all who handle seeds and seedlings in the east.
