Caring for American mountain

  • They are low-maintenance trees, needing little care and attention once established.
  • They may need watering during prolonged dry periods in summer – particularly in the first few years to ensure they establish well. Feed with a general granular plant food in spring.
  • They need little or no maintenance pruning, except to remove dead, diseased or dying growth and to thin out overcrowded and rubbing branches. If pruning is needed, it is best carried out any time from late autumn to early spring.

Typical uses of American mountain

Special features: They are usually present during the fall and last through much of the winter making them great sources of food for birds.

Culinary use: The fruits (fresh or dried) contain iron and vitamin C. They are also acidic and rich in tannins, however, and should be eaten in moderation.

Ornamental use: It is cultivated as an ornamental tree, for use in gardens and parks.
