Why Green Gable™ Black Gum Trees?

The most remarkable feature is the fiery red leaves in autumn. Without a doubt, you'll love your Green Gable Black Gum's vibrant scarlet red leaves that appear in autumn. This tree is famous for its stunning fall colors. Placing a Green Gable in your yard will heighten the nostalgic, fresh and comforting feelings of autumn.

The fall isn't the only time this tree turns heads. In the summer and spring, the Green Gable Black Gum produces extraordinary dark green leaves, highlighting its uniform, pyramid shape that looks incredible as a winter silhouette. And many Green Gable Black Gums live up to 250 years - imagine the centuries of memories your family can make playing under the shade of this remarkable tree.

Black Tupelos are magnificent!

I am blown away by the appearance and the obvious health of this tree (see photos). I ordered three black tupelo bare root sticks from Arbor Day that had very few roots and no signs of life after 3-4 weeks in the ground. I wasted $85. I wanted a black tupelo for my pollinator garden so badly, I ordered this one from fastgrowingtrees.com spending a little over $160. I could not be happier. In fact, I am so happy and thrilled, I just submitted an order for two more of them. Can't wait to get them all planted.
