Hello, I'm new to this site and have heard about the great info you can get the fellow outdoorsmen from here. Here's my question. I have 20 acres in Branch Co but only about 5 of it is hard woods. I'm looking for some fast growing trees that I could plant to try and fill in one of the switch grass fields on the land. I read about this Royal Empress Tree that grows about 10 ft a year and matures to 30-50 ft. Has anyone ever planted these before? Are they good for hanging a stand from? Any other suggestions for fast growing trees that I plant to fill in some of my open fileds? Thanks Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
