Great for shade, landscape border, and firewood. Another favorite is the beautiful Weeping Willow, growing 3-8 feet per year. It is great for boggy areas of the yard. If you want a fast-growing tree with spectacular fall color, two favorites are the Quaking Aspen and the River Birch. The stately Leyland Cypress is a popular choice if you are seeking a fast growing evergreen.
