The Fastest Growing Sycamore
The American Sycamore is very popular for residential landscaping because of its fast growth (up to 6 ft. a year) and thick canopy... which provides tons of shade.
You can count on your American Sycamore to quickly grow into a symmetrical shade tree or ornamental tree. Just plant and watch it grow! The tree's many branches develop large green palmate leaves that turn to gold in the fall.
Its dense leaves make it an excellent shade provider for your home... big leaves drop when the weather cools, allowing in plenty of sun when you need it most!
And it's so easy to grow!
- Adaptable to most soils
- Thrives in both warm and cold climates
- Grows just about anywhere, even harsh environments
- Just plant it in the ground and add water
This Sycamore develops smooth, white bark in the winter, adding additional seasonal interest. Plant one in your own yard and say good-bye to sweltering summer afternoons.

Doing Great So Far!
The Tree was delivered VERY quick. The packaging was perfect and the tree shipped safely. I planted and watered per the instructions and after only 5 weeks the tree is covered in leaves and growth! I highly recommend this!
Better Than Expected
I have purchased trees and other plants online before but this one exceeded my expectations. The tree came well packaged and undamaged. I stands 6 foot tall and the branches had leaves when it arrived. The instructions were well written and it looks great in our back yard area. I can get 6 foot trees from the local box stores but not the sycamore. We are very pleased with the purchase, the delivery and the support from Fast Growing Trees.
Very happy with this tree. It is everything I was expecting. Very tall good root system and buds and whole tree appear healthy.
Another Quality Tree
I live in Upstate SC and planted this tree this past January (2018). I planted it with mushroom compost and a packet of root rocket. The tree arrived in great shape at about 6 feet tall. I planted it within a day or two of getting it and waited until spring. As I write this it is October (2018) and the tree is now 15 feet tall with gorgeous and even foliage. I could not be more pleased with FGT's American Sycamore tree. I should mention I am not surprised about the outstanding quality as I have four of their amazing autumn blaze maples and an incredibly fast growing willow tree as well.
Healthy and happy!
She arrived quickly beautifully and healthy. So far seems to be happy in her new surroundings ! I am very pleased.
