A Completely Unique Shade Tree You Can Grow Anywhere!

Want to branch out from the ordinary shade tree but still plant something reliable and maintenance-free?

The Kentucky Coffeetree's unique upward branching pattern creates striking visual interest all year around and guarantees that no two trees will look alike.

Best of all, this tree is hardy, tolerant and adaptable in every way possible

Cold or warm climates, polluted or clean air, poor or rich soil, soggy or dry conditions - it doesn't matter - the Kentucky Coffeetree can thrive where other trees can't.

And it's completely resistant to pests, diseases, deer, and other damaging wildlife… nothing's going to take down this sturdy, dependable tree.

You'll love everything about this tree, including…

  • Spectacular winter silhouette - the branches reach upward in a crossed pattern unlike any other tree, you'll love how it stands out in winter
  • Airy shade - a light canopy means you get shade without killing all the plant life under the tree.

Growing to 60-70 ft., you can plant the Kentucky Coffee anywhere you want to create visual interest.

Yet, you'll still get all the benefits of a shade tree. Often planted in golf courses and large, open parks, this tree is known for perfectly combining form and function.

That's why this variety is always a huge hit - the tolerance, adaptability and beauty of the Kentucky Coffee.

Note: Our nursery carries male and female Kentucky Coffee trees. Our trees are younger and not separated; you will receive either a male or a female upon delivery.

  • Male trees will lack flowers but have an elegant vase shape with a narrow crown and draping branches. Similar to understory trees but without sacrificing the height.
  • Female trees feature rose-scented flowers that turn into large seed pods for seasonal interest, and the large size means easy cleanup for you!

Hoping for the best!

First time using FastGrowingTrees.com and I ordered 2 Kentucky Coffee Trees they had on sale. They arrived promptly and seem to be alive and dormant, but with a few branches snapped from the shipping/handling. Both are right at 6 feet tall and I planted them about 35 feet apart from each other. Gave them a nice mix of dirt, conditioner and soil, as well as the recommended root rocket fertilizer from their website. They look like 2 big sticks right now since it's Winter, but I'm hoping when May comes around, they will emerge from their dormancy alive and well.

It was a really nice,

It was a really nice, big tree, with a decent root ball, but several branch’s were broken, due to it not being packaged in a long enough box to accommodate it’s extra large size, so I had to cut a few branches to give the tree a clean angle cut, so that it will heal properly. Other than that, I am really pleased with it and can’t wait to see it come alive this spring to shade and provide some privacy, since it will now have all winter to establish itself.

So far so good

I’m pleased as I’ve already seen some significant new growth in only a couple of weeks.

Cool tree

Tree arrived in beautiful shape and is acclimating well. It provides a nice contrast to our maples, oaks, ashes and hickory trees. Hasn’t been through a winter yet but very pleased so far.
