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.

Tulip tree

If you’re looking for a tree that grows quickly and looks beautiful while doing so, the tulip tree is a perfect choice. Tulip trees are famous for their unique leaves and gorgeous flowers, though their foliage color is often what stands out the most. These trees grow between 15 and 18 inches each year and can eventually grow to be 100 feet tall. Unfortunately, tulip trees don’t grow flowers until they reach maturity, but their leaves are charming enough to make up for that.
