The Ultimate Adaptable Urban Tree

If you're seeking a tree that is as robust as it is beautiful, look no further than the Prairie Sentinel® Hackberry. With its narrowly upright structure, this tree stands tall and proud, adding visual appeal to any environment, from bustling city streets to serene suburban gardens.

Boasting rich green leaves with hints of grayish-green beneath, this tree suits well against any backdrop. As the seasons shift, so does the Prairie Sentinel® Hackberry, with its leaves transforming into a radiant shade of yellow.

The tree's columnar habit creates a uniquely vertical silhouette, making it perfect for urban landscapes with limited space on tight streets. It even attracts plenty of different species of birds. Plus, it’s incredibly adaptable and will flourish even in environments with drought, heat, salt, pollution, or varying PH soils.

Whether you're an avid gardener, a city planner, or simply someone who appreciates nature's artistry, the Prairie Sentinel® Hackberry makes a great addition to any area. Grab a Prairie Sentinel® Hackberry today and watch it transform your landscape!

Planting & Care

1. Planting:  When it’s time to plant your Prairie Sentinel® Hackberry, choose an area with at least 4 to 6 hours of sunlight per day and well-drained soil. Because of its height, make sure you choose an area away from power lines. 

Dig a hole that’s at least two to three times wider than your Hackberry’s root ball. After placing your tree in the hole, backfill its soil, tamp down to avoid air pockets, and lastly, water to help establish its roots.

2. Watering: Your Prairie Sentinel® Hackberry needs regular watering during the first few growing seasons for establishment. Typically, you should water your tree thoroughly about once a week. If you’re not sure when to water, simply check the surrounding soil down to around 2 or 3 inches. If the soil is dry, it’s time to water.

3. Fertilizing: Apply a well-balanced fertilizer to your Hackberry in early spring.

4. Pruning: Excessive pruning is not needed, but we recommend removing dead or damaged branches. Any pruning should also be completed during the winter season or during dormancy.
