Chinese Pistache is fast becoming a favorite deciduous shade tree for both landscapers and homeowners alike! This native from China, Taiwan, and the Philippines is also called by its botanical name Pistacia chinensis, and we love how its clean, dark green umbrella-shaped canopy provides plenty of shade! In the summer, this medium-sized tree can block out the sunlight, and when planted in rows, can also become a natural privacy screen so that it can block unwanted views! We also like to use them as a street tree, as a specimen for front yards, and they are also ideal trees for flanking driveways!
Once established, Chinese Pistache is an easy care, drought-resistant tree with little to moderate watering needs. They love the sun, so we like to plant them in a spot that gets plenty of full sun exposure. It offers year-round interest and gets bonus points for its pest resistance too. If you’ve been looking for a shade tree that can reduce temperatures inside your home, we recommend buying as big as you can and allowing our professional landscape crew to plant them around your home properly – it cannot get any easier than that!
