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!

The Foster Holly typically grows in a pyramidal shape and can reach a height of 15 to 25 feet (4.5 to 7.5 meters) with a spread of 10 to 15 feet (3 to 4.5 meters). It has glossy, dark green leaves with serrated edges, giving it a classic holly look. Female plants produce bright red berries in the winter, which add a festive touch to the landscape.

One of the notable characteristics of the Foster Holly is its adaptability to different soil types, including clay, loam, and sandy soils. It also tolerates a range of light conditions, from full sun to partial shade. This makes it a versatile choice for various landscaping applications.

The Foster Holly is often used as a specimen tree, in hedges, or as a privacy screen. It is known for its tolerance to urban conditions, including pollution and salt spray, making it suitable for both residential and commercial landscapes.
