Fast Growing 30-40ft Shade Tree Mid-MI
I'm looking for a Fast Growing Shade Tree that reaches 25-40 foot. We're replacing a sickly maple that has a bad case of Maple Leaf Spot and I'm afraid a new maple would catch the same thing, so I would rather not plant another maple. An ornamental pear was suggested. We can get a Cleveland Ornamental Pear from Gurney for a good price. I know the Bradley are subject to breaking, but the Cleveland is supposed to be better.
Many other fast growers grow too tall (this will be about 12-15 foot from the house, drive, and road).
I also don't want a fruit bearing tree (crab apples or smaller ok) or anything that is real messy.
Anyone have any other ideas?
We're in Mid-Michigan (Zone 5).
