Downtown Tree Walk

Chinese Pistache
Pistacia chinensis

This long-lived, winter hardy shade tree with spectacular red, red-orange fall color tolerates outstanding heat and drought. Used by xeriscape (dry landscaping) gardeners as a critical addition for wildlife, the seeds provide food for small rodents and birds while the flowers provide food for insects. It is native to China, Taiwan, and the Philippine Islands.
