Q. Can you recommend a fast growing tree?

I am looking for a fast growing evergreen tree that will grow in part sun and part shade and provide a screen from nearby developments. I live in Louisville, KY.


A good plant to use is Thuja “Green Giant.”  It is a very fast grower, evergreen and will provide a good screen. It’s a PHS Gold Medal Plant winner as well. The link below titled Ornamental Woody Plants is a resource guide to this topic. The link titled PHS Gold Medal Plants Thuja Page is a factsheet on this tree.
