What is a good tree for shade that is fast growing. What is the best time of year to plant it?
Best shade tree, one with leaves Couldn't help myself. Have you seen these Colorado trees I think they're called Austree? Grow 15' their first. In ten years they'd be 200 feet high. Impressive huh?
just trying to help, how big do you want the tree to be and do you want it to be a flowering tree? give back some info, so the guys can halp.
Not many of us have the opportunity to plant in subtropical areas. Are you in zone 9? My memory of living in Florida is a bit hazy, but are live oaks or banyon trees a possiblity? I know that both become large shade trees. Surely someone near you will have suggestions. Is there a large nursery nearby that you can get ideas by walking around?
