Good Tree for Climbing?
Totally new to this forum and fairly new to gardening too! I was wondering if anyone has suggestions for a fast-growing tree that would be safe (or as safe as it can be!) for a child to climb?
We live in western Washington in zone 5. We have several different areas where we could put a tree, but the one I'm leaning toward (because it's in easy view of most of the windows) is in full sun and is quite exposed and has sandy soil. There's a decorative concrete walkway a few feet awya from where I'd plant the tree so I'd need to find something that doesn't have invasive roots. So, in summary, is there anything:
*with sturdy, low branches
*can grow in sandy soil
*likes the pacific northwest climate??
My youngest is 2 years-old and I'd love to have something she could climb before college. Any ideas?
Thank you, Eileen
