Customer Reviews & Photos
- Chinese Pistache
My expectation was that ordering a tree through the internet would be very risky, based on past experience, but my Chinese Pistache arrived in great condition and ready to plant.
Tree arrived a little beat up with some leaves dying, but since we've planted it, it has thrived and looks fantastic!
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Though your Chinese Pistache Tree boasts hard, rot-resistant wood and tolerance for soil, climate and more, it’s important to keep a few best practices in mind. Note: Young trees may need staking and grow slowly for the first few years, which is beneficial for acclimation to your landscape.
When you’re ready to plant, choose a full sun location (6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day) and dig a hole that’s at least two to three times the size of your tree’s root ball. After placing your tree, backfill the soil, tamp down to ensure air pockets are eliminated and water your tree.
Well-drained soil is preferable, but the Chinese Pistache Tree is not fussy and tolerates most soil types.
2. Watering: Water your Chinese Pistache Tree once weekly or every 10 days during summer, tapering down to a monthly watering during winter. You should also allow your soil to dry on the surface between waterings.
3. Fertilizing: Chinese Pistache Trees under 5 years old should be fed in early spring with a nitrogen-based fertilizer.
4. Pruning: A bit of careful structural pruning may be helpful in the early years of your Chinese Pistache Tree’s growth – this helps it to develop an even canopy and proper branch spacing.
