Due to the support and affirmation at the national level, the popularity of Hands-on Inquiry Based Learning (HIBL) in China has gradually increased, and HIBL projects have been carried out in full swing. In this context, the construction of HIBL resources plays a prominent role in supporting the market. Taking typical cities in Guangxi (Nanning, Guilin, and Beihai) as examples, this study sorted out the data of woody plant resources, including the process of unification and naturalization of urban tree species names. The naturalization of tree species names is organized according to the latest natural classification system APG IV, and the Chinese names are reconfirmed based on Flora of China. By classifying the urban tree species data at the level of ecology and landscape (such as typical vegetation characteristics of typical cities in Guangxi, tree species in unique cities in Guangxi, introduction of urban tree species, landscape resources, and tree species with food source functions), a list of tree species suitable for the development of HIBL botanical course resources in Guangxi was obtained for the development and planning of follow-up HIBL courses. This study provides some theoretical support for the planning and development of plant resources, plant identification, and ecological HIBL projects in Guangxi.
