Negative roseypest On Jan 21, 2008, roseypest from San Francisco, CA (Zone 10a) wrote:

This tree is an extremely vigorous grower. The trees that a previous owner planted in the parkway (between sidewalk and curb) have grown from small trees as high as a person to 2 stories tall in three years. I also find its deciduous habit a bit messy, but this may be because I live on the west coast, and it is relatively simple to buy evergreen trees for this area of the yard. My trees are also a bit leggy, and I don't find them very attractive at this point in their development. Many of the photos I've seen of these trees show beautiful fall foliage, but we do not get the color on the trees in the milder coastal climate here. We lose the leaves around Dec-January and get them back in February.
Apparently the trees are supposed to grow to 30-40 feet tall, so I'm guessing they'll continue to shoot up.
These trees would be good for an area that requires little water but has room for a large tree with a lot of shade, especially if you need it "quickly".
