Chinese Pistache

Pistacia chinensis


Height 25’-30’

Width 25’


Many people love this fast growing shade tree for its beautiful fall color. It turns from yellows to reds to oranges sometimes all at once! During the rest of the year it has lovely green compound leaves with lance shaped leaflets. The foliage is also aromatic when crushed. The tree is dioecious which means the male and female flowers 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 all our clay soils and is very drought resistant.
