The history of naturalization of Russian olive, Elaeagnus angustifolia L., in Utah is presented. During the first half of this century Russian olive became a common species in cultivation in Utah cities. By 1924 the tree was becoming established in nature in central Utah. Naturalization has been most evident during the last two decades. At present Russian olive is a conspicuous part of the vegetation in the valleys of central and northern Utah. The histories of naturalization of the plant in other western states are similar to that in Utah.
