What Fast Growing Tree to Plant
So here's my dilemma ...... we have lived in our home foe 23 years and planted a flowering plum the second year we moved to this home. And this home is in Springfield Oregon. It grew into a beautiful front yard shade tree until today. One week after it fully blossomed out, and on the second day of spring no less, we had snow most of the night and this morning ..... and our beautiful tree has broken in so many and numerous places from the weight of the wet snow on all the flowered out blossoms that it is beyond saving. So my question is this ..... we are both 62 and haven't the years to wait out the growth, so what might be as pretty and also very fast growing to replace our lost tree? I think we are zone 8. Really like the looks of a Mimosa but have heard that they can be a pain in the keester.
