This tree is very popular in California, Arizona and Texas.
The Red Push (Chinese Pistache) is a sun lover and should be situated in an area of at least 6 hours of direct, unfiltered sunlight per day. Chinese pistache is not picky about the soil itís grown in as long as it drains well. Choose a site of not only plenty of sun, but with fertile soil deep enough to accommodate the long taproots and at least 15 feet away from nearby structures to account for their growing canopies. Dig a hole as deep as and 3-5 times as wide as the root ball of the tree. Center the tree in the hole, spreading the roots out evenly. Refill the hole; donít amend it, as it is not necessary. Tamp the dirt down lightly around the base of the tree to remove any air pockets. Water the tree in well.
