Fast growing, climbable tree?
This is a bit of a cross-post, but I thought I'd ask the tree experts here. We have a 30'X40' spot in our backyard that gets sun from about 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the summer. I'd love to put in a tree there, which will grow to be something that kids can enjoy climbing. My kids are 6, 4 and 2 years old right now, so I understand that it may not grow fast enough for them to climb. Plus, this is not our "forever" home, so that adds to that uncertainty. But it is such a wonderful spot for a tree in a large yard, that I'm sure someone else's kids could enjoy climbing the tree in future too. If it would get edible fruit, that would be even better, but that's not a priority. Some folks over in the CA forum suggested Fig (verte) and Alder. I was wondering if I can get any endorsements or other recommendations here. Thanks in advance for any help.
