    American sycamore zone 6

    Posted by MC on 05/29/21

    I purchased 3 bare root American sycamore saplings, the smallest available, and received them after fall in zone 6. We have rocky, sandy, acidic, poor soil on a hill that is windy and doesn’t receive irrigation. We are also experiencing a bit of a drought. I planted them with a little Porto g soil around the roots, and mulched a little on top. One tree was bitten in half by a bunny, so I put vinyl coil around them after that to protect the stems. Other than that i didn’t do anything else. In May, after a cold winter, all three have now leafed out and despite a long dry spell, they are all doing well. I just poured a little water from a bucket on each during the dry spell and that seemed to pull them through. Most other things I planted on this hill died. I highly recommend these tough trees!

    Received in Excellent Condition

    I was very pleased with my shipment. It was wrapped and the roots were kept moist. The roots had no visible damage of being trimmed. The trees were shipped in a hard cardboard box to prevent damage with handling. I planted them in the ground the same day that I received them and will see how they do this spring.

    My first time ordering

    The trees I received ( sycamore and osage orange) both were much larger than expected and the root system was excellent. Also the three free shrubs were a very pleasant surprise.
