Most New York gardeners are interested in planting a tree that produces fruit, shade or berries in a hurry. The question arises about whether to plant a large tree, or either to buy and transplant a fast growing tree. There is a problem with using this type of tricky logic, because the fast growing trees do not produce a high enough concentration of lignin or cellulose within the cell walls that insulate the tree or plant against cold damage or killing of the tree, because the exterior cell walls will sometimes collapse from the sudden drops caused by frigid temperatures, like those that were experienced during the extreme winter of the year, 2014.
