Description

The American Sycamore is a symbol of strength, resilience, protection, and longevity. These popular North American native trees have graced the earth longer than humans! Sycamores grow insanely fast and live for hundreds of years. American Sycamore trees are sturdy trees that can tolerate extreme weather conditions, pollution, and salt.

The Sycamore provides excellent shade with its dense and broad canopy. Be sure to provide your tree with plenty of room to grow. Reaching heights over 70 feet and a width over 50 feet, a full grown Sycamore is a substantial tree. Sycamores can grow up to 6 feet in a single year!

Plant a Sycamore and you will have a cooler home in no time. This hardy tree is deciduous so the leaves shed as the temperature drops allowing the warm sun to heat up your home in winter! This translates to lower energy bills year-round! The American Sycamore has large leaves that clean the air. Wildlife love the sycamore for its shelter and winter fruit. This majestic native shade tree is great for the environment and your pocketbook!

This shade tree is ideal to be the main, focal tree in your yard. If you have a large yard or piece of land, Sycamores are great for planting in a row to provide lots shade in the summer. And they look beautiful too! Plant at least 20 feet apart when planting in rows. Sycamores are ideal urban street trees as the stand up to pollution and road salt.

American Sycamore Trees are easy to grow and extremely adaptable. Sycamores thrive in full sun and are adaptable to any soil, even tolerating wet areas. These trees are drought tolerant once established, but will grow fastest when watered during dry, hot periods. Fertilize when planting and in early spring with our slow release fertilizer. Sycamores do not require pruning.

You won't have to wait for generations to sit in the shade with your children and grandchildren with the fast growing American Sycamore. This tough shade tree stands up the elements and grows almost anywhere in the US. Order yours today and you'll be cooling off in the shade in no time!

How to care

American Sycamore Trees are easy to grow and extremely adaptable. Spring and fall are ideal times to plant. However, if you avoid freezing and hot temperatures you can plant your tree almost any time of the year.

Sycamores thrive in full sun and are adaptable to any soil, even tolerating wet areas. Water deeply twice weekly for the first 3 months after planting. This helps the roots establish properly. Add a layer of 2 to 3 inches of mulch when planting to help keep the soil moist. Do not allow the mulch to touch the trunk as this increases the risk of pests and disease. These trees are drought tolerant once established, but will grow fastest when watered during dry, hot periods. Fertilize when planting and in early spring with our slow release fertilizer. Sycamores do not generally require pruning, but, if needed, prune when they are dormant in winter or early spring to remove any dead, dying, or crowded branches, or to maintain shape. The Sycamore is very hardy and pollution and salt tolerant.

Sycamores rarely have issues with pests or disease. Occasionally, scale, aphids, lacebugs, borers, and sycamore plant bugs can infest weakened trees. You can treat these pests naturally with horticultural oil. For severe infections you can use pesticides like carbaryl, also known as Sevin. In extremely humid areas, fungal issues can arise. Generally, treating after infection isn't extremely effective, so if you have problems yearly treat in early spring with copper fungicides to prevent infection. Neem Oil is an organic method of treating some fungal diseases and pests. It can be effective, but the entire tree must be coated in order for this method to be effective.

Good looking tree

As I have only had it a week, it’s a bit early to review, but it came the size ordered, in good shape and ready to plant.

American Sycamore.

great, beautiful trees! I thought the price was a little high based on purchasing other trees from companies, but the syncamore tree is relatively not common, and so all things considered, and especially considering the quality of these trees, it was worth the price to me. I would highly recommend

Bought an American Sycamore tree

Great price and prompt delivery. Was surprised how full the tree was for this size, I expected basically a single leader tree with a few small branches, but besides a main leader there are many other large branches. It was even taller than the 6-7 foot advertised minimum height at 7 ft 4 inches. The buds and starting leaves look very healthy and I’m very pleased with the purchase. It was packed very securely in a large heavy duty box to protect it during shipping and also easy to unpack. I like this tree so much I plan to buy another from you. Thank you, Tom

Acceptable tree for the cost.

Tree arrived quickly and was in good shape. I would've like to see a fuller tree for the money.
