The heights we list are after we prune your tree.
Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back the growth that was trimmed.
We prune your tree throughout its life. This process takes us longer, but gives you more branches and quicker production.
Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.
Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you better, thicker shade the first full growing season.
When you’re making an investment and effort in planting new trees in your landscape, you can assure their survival and growth by using TreeGator® - a truly simple and innovative drip irrigation system in a bag.

TreeGator® is super easy to install without any tools, and it can easily be filled up with a standard garden hose or can even be connected to a rain barrel!
It's a super time saver that takes the worry out continually remembering whether you've watered your new tree or not. Plus, all the water that goes into the drip bag is used up with no waste, so TreeGator® is environmentally friendly with regard to water use.
Get your new plants off to the right start by using DIEHARD™ Transplant.

Golden Raintrees give you an incredible show... all year long!
When the leaves first bud out in early spring, they’re a unique pink-red color, and eventually turn a deep green.
Then come the long, airy sprays of color.
It’s one of the few trees to feature yellow flowers that erupt in a glorious cascade all over the canopy in midsummer.
The show gets even better when the seed pods start to form in late summer. They turn a deep, rich orange and look like tiny, golden-orange paper lanterns!
But don’t let their delicate appearance fool you. These versatile champions stand up to heat, harsh climates and city pollution equally well. You often see them as street trees in urban environments and as fabulous focal points in groups of three to five in landscapes. Plant them 25-30 feet apart.
They grow up to 30 ft. tall and 30 ft. wide, so they make great shade trees where you have little space.
Golden Raintrees give you dense shade, but also make incredible flowering trees that can be the focal point of your landscape.
Be sure to order your Golden Raintrees now. They're very popular, and we sell out every year!
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Golden Raintree.
First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.
Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.
Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.
Next, separate the roots of your Golden Raintree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.
The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.
Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.
To make it just right, use a level.
As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.
Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.
Water your Golden Raintree again after the transplant is complete.
To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.
