Default Question For You Tree Huggers

Needing a shade tree for the back yard. What's a tree that grows fast and provides a good amount of shade. Half ass thought about throwing a pine back there but rather not. I remember a thread like this some years ago but couldn't find it.

Pecan tree.

Thick canopy in the summer to keep it cool, very little shade in the winter so the sun gets through to warm things up.

A lot of people don't care for the "debris" they generate. Other people refer to that "debris" as food.

If you want fast-growing shade, it's a Sycamore. But hope you like leaf clean up.

Agree with this. I put a river birch in after Ivan took all my shade, and it almost covers the front yard already. Also something to think about, a river birch is a lightweight tree so when another storm comes along, it won't tear your house up when it falls. Not knocking pecan trees though. Plant one or two for the nuts, not the shade in our lifetime.
