Planning to install this yourself? We recommend a size 15 Gallon or smaller for DIY installations. These sizes do not require any offloading equipment.
Any tree or shrub that is sized by HEIGHT or CAL (Caliper- size where the trunk meets the root flare) is delivered with a large root ball wrapped in burlap (B&B). They are typically 1000+ LBS per plant. They will require heavy equipment to install. Installation is not included in the price of the plant. We highly recommend adding the ServeScape ‘One-Click’ Installation service (must be added at the cart page) for material of this size, or working with a contractor that can provide equipment for installation.

For any tree or shrub that is sized larger than 10’ HEIGHT or 3” CAL, the customer will be required to provide offloading equipment or a contractor to offload unless paying for installation through ServeScape. We will coordinate delivery with you so that your contractor can have equipment ready upon your plant's arrival!
**Dormancy Note - This plant is currently dormant for the winter! It is available for purchase! Your delivered plant may be dormant, or showing very little top growth. However, you can still plant! These plants are putting all their energy into root production, so they will be ready to thrive in the spring! If you have any issues with your plant the following peak season, you can fill out our return request form to request a replacement plant.

The Ohio Buckeye, scientifically known as Aesculus glabra, is a deciduous tree native to the eastern and central regions of North America, including Ohio. It is the state tree of Ohio and is known for its unique foliage and distinctive fruit.

  1. Appearance: The Ohio Buckeye typically grows to a height of 30 to 60 feet, with a spread of 20 to 40 feet. It has a rounded crown and large, palmate leaves composed of five leaflets. In the spring, it produces showy yellow-green flowers, followed by fruit capsules that contain shiny brown nuts with light-colored patches.

  2. Location: Plant the Ohio Buckeye in a location that receives full sun to partial shade. It prefers moist, well-drained soil but can tolerate a range of soil types, including clay and loam.

  3. Watering: While the Ohio Buckeye is relatively drought-tolerant once established, it benefits from regular watering, especially during dry periods. Water deeply and thoroughly, allowing the water to penetrate the root zone.
