Question: I’ve seen ads in the Sunday papers for fast-growing trees of various types. They always seem too good to be true. Is that a correct assumption?
Answer: Yes. Most times the ads don’t even give you scientific names so that you could see that they’re talking about some type of cottonwood or willow. All they do is assign a catchy trademarked name to the tree and show you testimonials and unbelievable photos of one year’s growth. Stick with proven, quality trees from your local nursery.
