The native hackberry, which grows in Idaho’s foothills, deserts and canyons from Hells Canyon to the Boise Foothills, is a grocery store for wildlife. Its sharp, twisted branches are not welcomed by hikers walking by, or campers trying to set up a tent without ripping the fabric on the tree’s branches. But the tree is an important part of Idaho’s arid landscape. Its sweet berries provide food for an assortment of birds. Mule deer and antelope browse on its twigs. Beavers eat the wood. Thickets of hackberry also provide hiding places for deer and other wildlife. Although it is found in an arid landscape, it needs a constant water supply, so you’re most likely to find it along rivers, streams and seeps.
