Brightens any landscape with amazing fall color

The Chinese Pistache is spreading like wildfire because their blazing fall foliage can’t be matched. While other trees are colorless and entering dormancy, the Chinese Pistache is shining bright with multiple shades of reds, oranges and yellows.

These vivid trees will be the talk of the neighborhood because they will outshine all of the dull trees in your neighbor’s yards with their stunning color and beautiful, thick rounded canopies. Plus, unlike maples, they have a unique exotic look, with pairs of long slender leaves. 

In the spring and summer their canopies are filled with lush green leaves that will create a nice shaded area in your yard to relax under. A well-placed Chinese Pistache tree will shade the driveway or home to relieve sweltering summer heat. 

By producing ornamental red berries in the fall Chinese Pistache trees become a must have for wildlife enthusiasts because they attract a variety of songbirds to flock to the tree. They’re entertaining to watch as they hop from branch to branch.  

Urban landscapers can’t get enough of these trees because their high level of tolerance for pollution and smog allows them to be planted anywhere, even in large cities. They’re also drought and heat tolerant and will adapt to a variety of poor soils, even if they are sandy or rocky. 

Chinese Pistache trees are commonly found in neighborhoods, close to homes because they are medium sized trees. By only growing to 25 to 35 feet tall they become large enough to make a bold statement in your landscape, but won’t take it over.

Interesting to watch grow
We have had 2 of the Pistache trees for only about a month. In south Texas, in over 100+ degree weather, they are still green and growing. We are anxious to see them change colors. We would recommend buying any tree from Fast Growing Trees - they arrive well packed and healthy. Their customer service is superb. My only wish is that we could afford the dollar amount needed, to get free shipping.

Awesome tree
Terrific tree. Arrived in perfect condition and the full sun of my front yard has not phased it! It has not wilted, browned or lost a single leaf! Super excited to watch it grow!

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Chinese Pistache Tree

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Chinese Pistache Tree.

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.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Chinese Pistache 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 Chinese Pistache Tree again after the transplant is complete.

Reworked the landscaping and needed to replace some trees that had to be taken down. I was looking for something that would give seasonal interest as well as shade without growing to big.
