Fast-growing shade trees may have the ability to rise to a given height within a couple of years, but several factors must be predetermined. Before embarking on setting a stately shade tree in the perfect yard location, consider these guidelines.

We have Fast Growing Trees For All Zones, Not Just a Few.

Not all shade trees are comfortable in every part of the country. For instance, just because the Royal Empress tree is adaptable to many soils and climates, there are a few zones where it will not multiply. While the Paulownia elongate is well-accepted in North Carolina, Florida, and Indiana, the state of Wisconsin and Minnesota should be avoided. When selecting a fast-growing shade tree, be sure to check the compatibility of your given zone.

How Fast is Fast? Fast Growing Trees

A large assortment of shade trees can grow from 3 feet per year to 15 feet per year—however, the type of tree, such as flowering, dense shade, and adaptability, matters. For example, the Lombardy Poplar is not only an excellent shade tree when planted in rows but also a beautiful windbreak against heavy-blowing winds. It commonly grows at a pace of 6 feet per year, with proper care, and reaches 60 feet or more. However, if your yard space is small and you are looking for a shade tree that takes up little room, the Bloodgood Japanese Maple is an excellent choice. Yearly growth is 18 to 24-inches in a season, reaching a height of 10 to 15 feet.

The Right Care

Shade trees will only prove to be fast-growing with the right type of care. Choose to plant a young tree in the fall or spring to suppress the shock of being introduced to a new location. The first year is crucial to a tree's health. Keep a substantial amount of loose dirt around the tree trunk to promote water distribution when planting. Young trees need regular watering for the first year to strengthen roots and develop rapid root generation.

Transplanting any tree can reduce root generation and shoot growth. Until roots have had a chance to re-establish their new home, both the origins and the tree's peak must be kept alive. That delivers a healthy balance and will allow you to watch your tree's development. It is not recommended to prune the top of the tree during the early years but to remove damaged or broken branches.

Form a Healthy Tree Trunk

It is not necessary to stake a young tree. Allowing a growing tree to bend and sway in the wind will help develop a sturdy trunk—only stake in areas of highly windy conditions. For the first few years, fertilize the ground surrounding the tree to provide the right nitrogen balance. Wrap your newly planted tree trunk with burlap, but only for the first year. Burlap will deter small animals from munching on and sustaining changing temperatures. Do not remove lower branches from your young tree unless they become too long and vigorous. 

When spring arrives, continue to care for your young tree, and phenomenal growth and budding will appear. A tree needs not only a sound root system but also a clear freeway for feeding the trunk, branches, and crown.

Trees are beautiful, but it takes them a long time to grow to maturity. There are many ways to speed up this process and have healthy, fast-growing trees.

To kick-start the growth of your tree, you will need to concentrate on root feeding. It would help if you tried directly directing the water to the root. That is very important because the sources are the ones that need water and nutrients. There are many ways to aim your water straight onto the roots. One way is to use a 1-inch PVC pipe about 2 or 3 feet long. Then hammer the PVC pipe into the ground straight under the plants and not too close to the trunk, leaving 1 or 2 inches of PVC pipe uncovered above ground. Fill the PVC pipe with water, which goes directly to the tree's roots.

You can also apply a drip line around the tree. A drip line produces a slow dribble of water that will go through the soil better than a hose. By dropping the water flow, the ground will have time to absorb the water accurately to the roots. You must leave the drip line on for an extended time when watering.

Another way to get water down to the roots is utilizing a root irrigation stake. The stakes attach directly to your hose. You stick the other end in the ground as deep as the tree roots. When you turn on the water, it sprays out the end of the stake under the field.

For fast-growing trees, you need high potent fertilizer like Miracle to grow, or try different types of Seaweed extract. Apply all fertilization through the PVC pipe, the drip irrigation system, or the irrigation stake. That will make sure it gets to the roots only. It would help if you fertilized the tree roots every few months. If you do this, your tree will have more giant leaves, more foliage, and faster growth.

Trees need care for the first three to five years. Suppose the tree is the full sun; plant it to get six hours of sunlight daily. Plant your tree in the correct kind of soil. Planting a tree in well-matched ground will help the nutrients absorb faster, giving you fast-growing trees. Do not trim the shoots or branches from the trunk when the tree is young because they let the tree grow faster they also provide shade for the log preventing disease. Pile dirt around the bottom of the tree, and then pile mulch on top of the soil. That helps the tree mature faster.

Fertilize your tree based on the type of tree it is and the soil it needs.

Have a soil sample taken to see what nutrients it will need. You should fertilize every two or three years.

Using a pre-developing herbicide is the best way to manage weeds around your trees. The herbicide will expose the natural soil and make any tree a fast-growing tree.
