Bold Fall Colors for Street or Shade

Why Katsura Trees?

The Katsura Tree is a gorgeous Asian shade tree that’s easy to grow and tolerant of most soil conditions and environments. From its high-quality autumnal colors to its effortless upkeep, the Katsura is the quintessential plant-and-forget shade tree.

Even better? It's pollution tolerant, with a shallow root system. That means it's perfect for lining streets since it filters the air and won't destroy sidewalks or streets with invasive, deep root systems.

And it gives off a subtle yet enticing aroma. Imagine walking in your yard in fall and noticing an alluring smell of caramelized sugar and cinnamon. As your non-invasive, pest and disease resistant tree grows, it will embody the warm feeling of autumn with its large, colorful leaves and seasonal scent.

Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better

For starters, our Katsura Tree grows as a pyramidal shape when young, so it even looks good before it’s established.

And since we've planted, grown and shipped it for best results, it's poised for a long, lush life in your own landscape. When it arrives at your door, it arrives ready-to-grow, with a healthier root system and more developed branching than what's available at your local nursery or big box store.

This popular tree is a no-brainer for those who want the good looks of fall without the work. Get your own Katsura Tree today!

Very positive experience

TMI incoming... My husband is trained in botany, horticulture and landscape design. He knows the Latin name for everything. He's always wanted a katsura. Even though Memphis is technically within the zone, you don't see them here. There's one at Rhodes College a few blocks down, but he really wanted one. So long story short, bought one from this website. Arrived stupid fast. He's planting it now. He's very excited. Giant win for me. It looks great. Fingers crossed it lives :)

I’m happy with my Katsura tree. It is still getting established. I would have liked a larger size but this works well for having gad it shipped to my door!

Great Tree

Beautiful tree with great scent. It was a little wilted when it arrived, so I'm hoping it makes it through the summer.

Love it.

I have purchased several trees and have been pleased with all of them. Also, I have called your help line and every time I spoke to someone they were helpful, friendly and professional.
