Hi there,

We have a what we think is a Japanese Katsura tree in our backyard. It came with the house so a couple questions.

1. Is this definitely a Katsura tree?
2. How big will it get? (It's about 12-15ft currently)
3. Is it too late to move it? It is in a bad spot if it is going to keep getting larger, and it would be a shame to cut down.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Yes, it is definitely a Japanese Katsura tree. I have seen them grow 50ft high in Chicago, but theu are not fast growers. It is too late for you yourself to move it, but you could get a company to come and move it with equipment. FYI, you can trim the branches up and grow it as a shade tree.
