The Fastest Growing Shade Tree

Lombardy Poplar

Another fast growing shade tree is the Lombardy Poplar, growing as much as 6 ft. annually. This particular poplar is an excellent choice for those that desire privacy via a ‘living wall’ or a windbreak in a hurry. Also, Lombardy poplars make a very nice shade in only a few short years.

The Lombardy poplar’s large leaves provide excellent coverage for homes from the hot summer sun. It will grow to a height of 70 ft. with a 40 ft. spread. An excellent choice for a shade tree.
