Most gardeners want to plant a tree that will provide shade as soon as possible or to mature a fruit or nut crop as soon as possible, and the choice of either planting a large tree or planting a fast growing tree is considered. It seems that a rational choice is to plant fast growing trees to get lots of shade or big crops in a hurry, however, research has shown the fast growing plants or trees produce cell walls that are enlarged and elongated so that less cellulose or lignin is deposited inside the cell wall, and that makes the cellular tissue much more vulnerable to sudden drops in frigid temperatures causing tree damage or death. Planting a slow growing tree or planting sometimes is the best.

On August 14th 1765, a group of men were protesting the Stamp Act underneath a large upright Elm tree, where they lynched two tax collectors at the demonstration, because of the increased taxation. The Elm tree, where the protest occurred, became known as the: “Liberty Tree” and once the other colonies heard about this they adopted their own “Liberty Tree” as a safe haven to hold public meetings.The State tree of Massachusetts is the Elm tree, which is a large growing shade tree, sometimes growing to be 90ft tall at full maturity.
