Planning to install this tree yourself? We recommend a size 15 Gallon or smaller for do it yourself installations. These small sizes do not require any offloading equipment!
Trees that are sized by height or caliper are delivered with a large root ball wrapped in burlap. They require heavy equipment to install. We recommend working with a contractor for installation! They can also provide the equipment necessary for offloading the tree upon delivery. We will coordinate delivery with you so that your contractor has equipment ready upon your trees arrival! OR check the box below for ServeScape to provide offloading equipment for an additional fee.

Yellow Buckeye is a showy flowering deciduous tree with an oblong crown and dark green 5 toothed palmate leaves that turn yellow-orange in fall.  Long erect panicles of airy yellow flowers with red anthers bloom in mid-spring and give way to glossy, inedible nuts (buckeyes).  Flowers best in rich, moist soils.  Drought intolerant, particularly in youth.

Aesculus octandra, or sometimes known as Aesculus flava, is a host to moths, provides nectar for bees, and is one of the earliest flower providers for hummingbirds
