Fastest Growing Tree

Post by yawer » December 6th, 2014, 5:09 pm

Which tree is recommended as fastest growing tree ? I pan to utilize a space of about 1600 sq ft for wood supply for general purposes like burning, fence posts etc. I have read the discussion in this forum on Eucalyptus tree although internet research has very varied opinions on it. Other choices are bamboo (but what specie ? ) and poplar ?

Suggestions are appreciated and shall be very helpful.
Kindly see that planting area would be Potohar, near Islamabad.

regards

Poplar tree is best suited, it is our native "Populus ciliata"

Izhar sb, how would you propagate Poplar tree ? Eucalyptus tree is propagated by coppicing leaving few inches and 3-4 new trees grow again. Can we do coppicing for poplar too ?

Poplar has a more apical growing pattern compared to eucalyptus.. that is why it responds comparatively less on coppicing.. Poplar propagation is very easy with cuttings..

Thank you Izhar sb., Found out that Willow will also do good as a good competitive tree in fast growth with Poplar.
