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 Yellow Buckeye, also known as Aesculus flava, is a large deciduous tree that is native to the eastern United States. It's known for its showy yellow flowers in spring and its unique, buckeye nuts in the fall.

This tree typically grows to a height of 50-75 feet with a similar spread. It prefers full sun to part shade and thrives best in well-drained, moist, fertile soils. The Yellow Buckeye is a great choice for large landscapes where it has room to spread.

The flowers of the Yellow Buckeye are yellow and appear in upright clusters in the spring. The leaves are compound and have a dark green color that turns yellow in the fall. The buckeye nuts are encased in a husk and are a favorite of squirrels.
