I'd be cautious about taking anything from the National Arbor Day
Foundation at face value. Reason is, on their ads soliciting
memberships they offer a thank-you gift of 10 different species of
trees. Included among these are flowering dogwood, willow oak and
golden raintree, off of which are definitely not cold hardy here in
Minneapolis-St. Paul. When I suggested that they instead consider
offering at least a warm-, moderate- and cold-climate combination,
depending on the location of the donor, I was told the combination they
sent to all donors was just fine, thank you very much. -- Sam Brungardt,

I don't recall seeing this on the list, but the Arbor Day folks released
an update to the Hardiness Zone maps for 2004. Very interesting. I've
been zone 5 since I can remember, now it looks like I am zone 6...
