Growth rate of Paperbark Maple and Ginkgo
I recently planted (among others) 2 trees known for their slow growth rate. Both were planted in November.
I am surprised with both trees:
Paperbark Maple: this one seems to be growing quite fast. I've only used organic amendments, but it has already grown 6 - 8 inches this spring.
Ginkgo: this one does not look like it has grown 1 centimeter. It is only about a 4 foot tree. When I planted it, the very tip of the tree was broken off. The only growth is the leaves; no new branches or growth on the tip. Is this normal? How slow is slow?
