A Timeless, Hardy Tree with Old-World Elegance

Why Monkey Puzzle Trees?

It's a wonder of the ancient world. This coniferous tree rose to popularity in late 18th-century Europe for its unique prehistoric appearance, and is a great option for gardeners and property owners looking for something a bit outside the box. With heights of up to 90 feet and large, upward-arching branches, it offers a unique look for just about any landscape.

Basically, your Monkey Puzzle Tree will be the talk of the neighborhood. Especially since it delivers year-round color. This evergreen lives up to the name, providing striking green foliage throughout the year. It is native to Chile and Argentina but can thrive in a variety of cool, humid, and temperate climates.

It's tough and deer resistant. Its sweeping, spiny limbs were thought to confuse and repel monkeys (hence the name), and it repels your local deer and rabbit populations too.

The Monkey Puzzle is the definition of effortless beauty. Plant in the fall or spring, give them plenty of sunshine and space, and let these easy-to-grow trees do their thing. Pruning is rarely needed, so you won't spend hours cultivating this ornamental gem.

Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better

First, it's nearly impossible to find the Monkey Puzzle at most nurseries. And if they are available, they're bare-rooted, or 'ball and burlap.' This can leave up to 90% of the roots behind, so you risk losing the tree since it's less able to absorb vital nutrients and water.

But when you order your Monkey Puzzle from Fast Growing Trees, you get healthy roots, better branching, and unique ornamental beauty all in one - no guesswork in growing.

    2nd monkey puzzle tree

    Just got my 2nd monkey puzzle tree the other day, I’ve got another one year ago it’s still in ground still growing. Fast growing trees is highly recommended! Package was delivered safe and sound within the week, tree was in perfect condition. Here’s a photo of the one I have in ground from last year and the one I just got.
