Native Herbaceous and Woody Species (IL)

I'm looking for lists of herbaceous and woody sub-tree species native to NW Illinois for use in providing native support species to create an edible food forest. Can you provide any likely resources? Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

Hi Jerome:

Listed below are several fine resources:

List of Woody Plants Native or Naturalized in Illinois: http://www.inhs.uiuc.edu/~kenr/woody.html

Mohlenbrock, R.H. 2002. Vascular Flora of Illinois.

Mohnlenbrock, R.H. and D.M. Ladd. 1978. Distribution of Illinois Vascular Plants.

Alternatively, you can always contact your local IDNR district forester:
