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 Greenleaf American Holly, scientifically known as Ilex opaca, is a native evergreen tree in the holly family (Aquifoliaceae). Here's some information about the Greenleaf American Holly:

  1. Leaves: The leaves of the Greenleaf American Holly are leathery, glossy, and have a spiny margin. They are typically oval or elliptical in shape and can vary in size, ranging from 2 to 4 inches (5 to 10 centimeters) long.

  2. Flowers and Fruits: In spring, the Greenleaf American Holly produces small, white flowers that are inconspicuous but attract pollinators. Female trees will develop bright red berries in the fall and winter, which persist throughout the season and provide a beautiful contrast against the dark green foliage. Male trees are needed for pollination to produce berries.

  3. Tolerance: The Greenleaf American Holly is known for its tolerance to a wide range of growing conditions. It can tolerate full sun to partial shade and is adaptable to various soil types, including clay and acidic soils. It is also relatively drought-tolerant once established.
