As the winter chill finally thaws out and the spring sun warms up our weary bones, chances are you’re looking for ways to refresh your home — inside and out. If your yard seems a little lacking in foliage, you might want to consider planting a few trees to add some lovely color and shade. Of course, we all know trees can take their time when it comes to growing out all their branches. That begs the question: What are the fastest growing trees you can plant this spring?
We looked into the expert advice on the Arbor Day Foundation website to answer that very question. That said, there’s no need to wait for the annual tree-loving holiday to start planting your own mini-forest. In fact, you’ll have a leg-up on your neighbors if you get a start now and may even find yourself as a frontrunner for the “Best Yard” award in your neck of the woods. Take a look to see which fast-growing trees you’ll want to stick in your outdoor space ASAP!
