Looking for shade tree - coastal AL
We just moved to Fairhope, AL during the winter from VA, so needless to say, things are a little different here in terms of gardening. There was a live oak (newly) planted in our backyard by the home builder that died over the course of the winter. We'd like to replace it, but our backyard tends to hold alot of water when it rains due to the clay soi. For instance, after a storm this AM, there is standing water in the backyard now. We'd like something that will provide shade, and will hopefully grow quickly (as opposed to slowly - we'll probably on be in this house 5 years or less). Any suggestions? Coming from VA, we don't mind if the leaves fall - seems like the locals are adverse to falling leaves here. Any suggestions?
