Amazing Fall Color & Easy-Growing Shade

Why Chinese Pistache Trees?

The Chinese Pistache is spreading like wildfire because its 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.

Urban landscapers can’t get enough of these trees because of their high level of tolerance for pollution and smog, which 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.

Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better

The best part about your Chinese Pistache Tree is that we've planted, grown and nurtured it from day one...now, you reap the rewards of our hard work at the nursery.

Unlike other big-box shade trees, your Chinese Pistache Tree arrives well-rooted in its own pot...never bare-root. That means a greater chance of long-term success in your own landscape.

So, don't wait...get your own Chinese Pistache Tree today!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Your Pistache will benefit best from a location that receives full sun and well-draining soil.

Make your hole 4 to 5 times as wide as the root ball. Be sure to center your tree and begin to backfill the hole, tamping the soil down as you fill to prevent air pockets from forming. Water thoroughly and spread 2 to 3 inches of mulch around the base of the tree.

2. Watering: For the first month, be sure to water your Pistache twice weekly. The best way to ensure that you’re watering deeply enough is to place your garden hose next to the base of the tree on a trickle.

3. Fertilizing: For trees that are five years (or younger), fertilizer should be introduced during the spring and fall seasons. Use a nitrogen-based formula with superphosphate if the tree has not grown at least 2 to 3 feet annually. Be sure to follow the application instructions provided on the packaging.

4. Pruning: Prune the top of the tree when it reaches six feet tall between January and February, and this will force more branches to develop. As branches emerge, select one as the tree’s trunk, the other as a branch, and remove the rest. The trunks should be left to grow another three feet and then pruned to a couple of feet above your original cut, which in turn will encourage more branches. Repeat this process until you get a well-spaced and symmetrical look.

Still growing

It has grown about 4 inches. Naturally still looks more like a stick than a tree. Can’t wait until Spring to see what happens.

Beautiful!

This tree truly has the best color and shape of any tree on our black and even in our neighborhood. The colors are truly amazing and very bright in it's colors. It is also the very last tree in our neighborhood to loose it's leaves. We get to enjoy it's vibrant colors even longer into the season than other trees. Very easy pick up and very little maintenance. I'll let the picture speak for itself though
