excellent tree that will shade the house from AZ sun/heat?
needs fast growing tree in the backyard(south west exposure)that will provide a lot of shade for the house big time from Az sun/heat. preferably evergreen, low litter or no litter at all, not using a leaf rake just to spend hours bagging the leaves, not a water hog like a queen palm, uses less water, no thorns like cactus, not poisonous like oleander, does not break/uproot easily with only 20mph of wind like a palo verde,acacia or mesquite tree, not prone to cold snap/frost that will kill the tree like a a ficus nitida. i notice every desert tree has small "ity bity" leaves and with a slight wind their bark snaps easily. any tree suggestions ?
