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.

  1. The American Mountain Ash typically grows to a height of 20 to 40 feet (6 to 12 meters) with a spread of 15 to 30 feet (4.5 to 9 meters). It has an upright, rounded crown and a slender trunk. The leaves are pinnately compound, with 9 to 15 leaflets that are elliptical and serrated along the edges. In the fall, the leaves turn vibrant shades of orange, red, or yellow. 

  2. Growing Conditions: American Mountain Ash thrives in full sun to partial shade. It prefers moist, well-drained soil but can tolerate a range of soil types, including sandy or clay soils. It is hardy in USDA hardiness zones 3 to 6.

  3. Maintenance: Once established, American Mountain Ash is relatively low-maintenance. It requires regular watering, especially during dry periods, to keep the soil consistently moist. Mulching around the base of the tree helps retain moisture and suppress weeds. Pruning is generally not necessary, but you can remove any dead or damaged branches as needed.
