Becuz they are not a native tree they are fron Japan originally . They generally promote native trees that generally grow in the different zones naturally in this country.

Too bad there r so many trees that are not native that r so beautiful. I have my share mostly blooming trees. Wa. And the cherry trees were given to the US as a gift for peace . I have a huge collection of Japanese Maples minis and large. Leaf color outstanding this time of year.

On Arbor day many tree assoc. Will plant a tree free in your yard for you. Your choices are limited.

Have a good day!

American persimmon is native to the eastern half of the US. The small fruit is edible after its totally ripe. Many folks don't like the trees though because they sucker pretty badly.
