I need a fast growing tree that will provide at least a little shade. I have fond memories of "popcorn" trees(Chinese Tallow) from my childhood and had thought to plant one of those but noticed I don't see any around (I grew up 100 miles inland and they seem to be more common there). Knowing that when you don't see a certain species around there is usually a good reason, I started doing a little research. It seems they have fallen out of favor and have even been added to the list of invasive species in my state. Anyone else had any experience with this species? Am I going to be sorry if I plant it and am I going to be villified for introducing it into the neighborhood? Any other suggestions for what I might grow instead? Man, it is sunny and warm and I have got the "bug" bad today?
