Product Description

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!

Very Tall Tree

I was surprised when we go the Sycamore because it literally had 0 leaves. It does appear to be healthy with small buds appearing on the ends of the tiny branches. We have planted it in the middle of our front yard and hope it doesn't take too long to get some leaves. Hopeful that it will grow into a beautiful large tree in the coming years!

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.
