Chinese Pistache

Pistacia chinensis


Height 40'- 45'

Spread 30-35'


Many people love this moderately fast growing shade tree for its beautiful fall color. It turns yellows, oranges, and reds sometimes all at once! During the rest of the year it has lovely green compound leaves. The foliage is also aromatic when crushed. The tree is dioecious which means male and female are on separate trees. The female produces panicles of small berries, which the birds love to eat. The Chinese Pistache is a very hardy tree that tolerates a wide range of soils and is very drought tolerant. Does not have any know insect or disease problems.
