We’re not going out on a limb when we tell you you’ll absolutely love all the positive attributes of the Scarlett Sentinel Columnar Apple tree.

For starters, the tree grows arrow straight and has virtually no branches! That makes it the perfect choice for confined or tight areas. Also, this tree is as sturdy and hardy as any apple tree around. It’s been known to withstand summer temperatures of well over 100 degrees and still yield healthy and productive harvests with delicious fruit as soon as the first year of planting.

Frankly, Scarlet combines Good Taste and Great Eye Appeal

Flanked by shiny, deep green leaves, the Scarlet Sentinel’s abundant apples hang like plump, red and green bells on an unfurled Christmas wreath. It’s a rich look of fruity goodness that will drape in great numbers during several productive, annual harvests. Their sweet and aromatic flavor lends itself well to sliced cheese and a glass of your favorite wine. Crisp and juicy, the Scarlet apple boasts both good looks and satisfying taste throughout the growing season.

Diversity in the Landscape

Now that you know the Scarlet Sentinel will exceed your expectations of solid production and good taste, it’s also nice to know that this tree is virtually trouble free. Unaffected by bugs, pests and disease, even windy locations are no hindrance to its successful growth and yields. As if all that’s not enough, snow white blossoms will emerge late from this dwarf that won’t grow much beyond 10 feet tall.

For best results, pair with the North Pole Columnar Apple Tree.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Tree to Door

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

Can I Plant Now?

Yes... Your Red Columnar Apple Tree can be planted any time of year... even Winter. Roots will continue to grow on warm days, giving your tree a head-start for Spring.

It's Easy to Plant your Red Columnar Apple Tree


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Red Columnar Apple Tree.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

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.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Red Columnar Apple Tree 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.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

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 Red Columnar Apple Tree 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.

I'm limited on space. What other tree could I used to pollinated it ????
A shopper on Jun 25, 2014
Best Answer: Ted Red Columnar Apple Tree is self fertile, so you don't need another tree. Two Red Columnar Apple Trees would work very well to pollinate each other.

does this tree self pollinate?
A shopper on Jun 21, 2014
Best Answer: I've read yes and also no. We planted last fall and have 1 apple this year. I also planted a Fuji Apple tree close by. It has 2 apples. So the jury is still out. I'd say two trees of different variety that bloare better than one
