    Hie thee to the nearest large nursery. Ask for the owner or manager. Thereupon thee shalt receive the wisdom thou seekest. 😇

    Locust Trees are extremely fast growing and have a beautiful smelling flower in the spring. You might want to check them out and see if they grow in your climate. I'll bet they do.

    Be careful making your selection. Many trees that grow quickly are short-lived or have weak wood. Consult a good nursery in your area, or check out websites and books. Michael Dirr's "Manual of Woody Landscape Plants" is an excellent resource.

    I second Ellis the fast growing trees are sometimes the most short lived and or have weak wood, which means the branches break off easily. Another reason to talk to a local nursery person is you want to find out any bad habits of the tree. By bad habits I mean this;, Walnut trees produce very large hard pods that smell and stain, Oak trees have acorns that can be very big and or produced by the ton. Locust trees that were planted near us grew quickly and produced large long seed pods. They have tiny leaves that shower down in the fall and are amazingly hard to pick up. The female Gingko tree produces fruit that smells like vomit. It's best to talk to a pro and get all the info.
