Pistache Tree – Description , Where to Buy

Q: Where can I buy a Chinese pistache tree?

A: You’ve made a good choice. For glossy green summer foliage and eye-popping fall color, few trees rival the pistache. It only grows twenty to thirty feet tall so it is a good suburban tree.

Buy it balled & burlapped rather than container grown; you’ll get a bigger tree with a straighter trunk. Local nurseries are receiving their spring tree shipments right now so the obvious first answer is to make several calls to nurseries close to home. Further afield, Walker’s Nursery in Jonesboro and Lost Mountain Nursery in Dallas carry the tree.
