The Fastest-Growing Symmetrical Sycamore

Why American Sycamore Trees?

The American Sycamore is very popular for residential landscaping because of its extremely fast growth. In fact, the American Sycamore can gain up to 6 feet per year, growing a thick canopy that provides tons of shade quickly.

You can count on your American Sycamore to grow into a full, symmetrical tree. The tree's many branches develop large green leaves that turn to gold in the fall, offering good looks and dense growth. This makes it excellent for shielding your home from hot summer weather or allowing in plenty of sun during winter when you need it most. And the Sycamore develops smooth, white bark in the winter, adding additional seasonal interest when other trees look drab.

So, it’s an energy and money-saver. Even better is the fact that it’s easy to grow too…adaptable to moist soil types, thriving in both warm and cold climates, and growing well with just a bit of water and sun.

Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better

You won’t find a healthier American Sycamore at your local nursery or garden center. Unlike other retailers, we’ve planted, grown and shipped your Sycamore with meticulous care. Now, when it’s delivered at your door, it arrives with a healthier, well-developed root system.

And because your Sycamore is delivered with better branching, it has thicker, fuller foliage…meaning it needs less water, less sun, and less care from you.

When you buy our larger sizes, you can get explosive growth and shade as soon as the first season.

Plant one in your own yard and say goodbye to sweltering summer afternoons – get your iconic American Sycamore today!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Find a sunny place in your yard (6 to 8 hours of sunlight daily) with well-drained soil. Dig a hole twice as wide as the root ball. Place the root ball in the hole, backfill the soil, and water to settle the roots. Adding mulch to the base of the tree with help with water retention, though it is not necessary.

2. Watering: Keep your tree well-watered in its first 3 years. If you get less than 1 inch of rain per week, water your tree. However, if you’re not sure when to water, simply check your soil about 3 inches down. If the soil is dry there, it’s time to water.

3. Pruning: You can shape the top of your tree by pruning, though it’s unnecessary. Prune any diseased or dead branches if you see them, as this will maintain the health of your tree.

    My new tree

    It came carefully packaged quickly. Leaves fresh for fall. We will see how it likes its new home in the spring.

    Gorgeous

    Came protected in its own box and was packaged so that it could not be harmed. The tree came in dormant and it has been planted, so I'm looking forward to spring when I can see it start to grow again.

    American Sycamore Tree

    This tree came promptly to the door after ordering it. It’s a great looking little tree. Close to 7’ tall out of the box. We can’t wait to see it grow through the years and shade our west side of the house.

    So far so good

    The tree is kinda skinny but it looks healthy. The real test will be this winter. If it survives, I'll be real happy.
