 This Hackberry tree has sadly been forgotten over the years, not very many have even heard of this tree. Hackberry is a very quick, hard-to-kill tree that is easy for anyone to grow. The hackberry tree is a strong medium to large native shade tree that can grow in many areas and will do well. Over decades these can become very large shade trees. They can even stand up to strong winds and tolerate air pollution.
All of this hardiness adds up to a good landscape choice, particularly if you’re looking for an energy-conserving shade tree that doesn’t require watering. Our hackberry trees are grown from seed. These native trees are native to Our home state of Missouri as well as other states.  The hackberry tree is a great shade tree that can get pretty large. 

Hackberry Trees contain both male and female flowers and are pollinated by the wind. 

Hackberry trees typically begin to produce fruit at 15-20 years of age.

Two Gallon Pot — 18-36" inches tall (more roots than trade gallon size)




All of our trees ship Bareroot which means they will ship with no soil and no pot. This allows the plants to have a safer trip through the mail as well as to cut down on shipping costs majorly. The roots will be carefully removed from the pot they are growing in, and then wrapped in moist material with the roots sealed up to keep them moist during transit.

Best shade tree

No one has hackberry trees around here. We do a lot of landscaping and this is the tree I will always recommend. I grew up in south missouri where there are quite a few native natural hackberry trees and these give good shade. Usually don’t get super massive and pretty strong without tons of broken branches litter to pick up. Good landscaping tree in our book

Thank you very much!
