Abstract:
The objective of this study was to create a reference of historically identifiable eras in plant use and landscape design in Tucson between 1854 and 1960. Determination of plant use eras was based on a combination of factors: (1) significant events, (2) technological advancements, (3) the number of species identified during specific time frames, (4) changes in plant collection patterns, and (5) new design trends. Five major landscape plant use eras are identified: the Anglo Settlement Era (1854-1879), the Railroad Era (1880-1899), the Post Victorian Era (1900-1917), the Post World War I and Depression Era (1918-1938), and the World War II and Suburban Expansion Era (1939-1960). Plant introduction peaked between 1900 and 1917. Following that time, tree introductions declined significantly and shrub introductions increased.
