Trees are a crucial and integral part of the ecosystem. They are essential to maintain the balance of the ecosystem, to prevent soil erosion, and to keep environment pollution-free. Adequate water and food supply, sunlight, and optimum temperature are required for their proper growth.
Every plant has a different growth cycle and life cycle. Some plants grow slowly, while some are fast growing. Trees that grow fast use nutrients for exceptional leafy growth. Here are some examples:
The Norway Spruce (Picea abies)
It is one of the fastest-growing, evergreen trees. It grows very wide and can be used as an ornamental showpiece. It can withstand extremely cold climate. It grows to the size of a Christmas tree within two years. It is conical-shaped when young, and columnar when mature.
Weeping Willow (Salix babylonica)
It is tall and wide, with drooping branches that reach the ground. It grows to a height of about 8 - 10 feet within a year under ideal conditions. Its narrow, small leaves appear in late winter, offering the tree a golden look. As these plants mature, they become green and turn yellow in autumn. They grow vigorously in dry, as well as moist locations and alongside riverbanks.
Hardy Pecan (Carya illinoinensis)
It is one example of rapidly growing beautiful trees. It provides rich-flavored, sweet nuts during fall. This tree is ideal for planting in the lawn because it shed its leaves in late falls and is resistant to the insect attacks. It is about 100 feet tall and 70 feet spread.
