Growing a tree is a journey of patience and determination. The efforts you put in now will pay off decades later. However, this doesn’t necessarily need to be the case. Some trees grow so quickly that they reach maturity in just a handful of years. Whether you’re looking for some quick shade or just want faster landscaping, there’s a tree for you.


1. Silver maple

When it comes to fast-growing trees, the silver maple tree is both legendary and infamous. For some, the silver maple is a landscaping dream.

A silver maple usually grows one to two feet each year.
