Fastest growing tree
I'm looking for a very very fast growing tree that doesn't have any messy fruits to clean up or anything.
We cut down a wild cherry tree that was about 40 - 50 feet tall and now there is no privacy/shade in the back yard.
We need something that grows big and fast. This is about 30 feet from the house so no silver maples lol.
People have recommended northern catalpas and manitoba maples...the only issue with the manitoba maple is too many keys, im not dealing with that on my newly sodded lawn...that's why we cut the cherry tree down.
Someone also recommended a locust, my only concern is the tiny leaves getting caught in the deck...the keys from another manitoba maple in the area already get caught.
Any suggestions? The northern catalpa looks pretty cool but I hope it grows super fast.
