July 2006. I planted a fast growing cottonless cottonwood for Little. He actually chose it from the hail damaged section at Lowe's.
He was so stinkin' cute!! And the tree was so tiny!! Well, they both were, I guess.
July 2011 . . . Little and his tree . . .
There's no way I can get this whole tree in. Fast growing is right. These are known for putting on six feet per year and I'd say that's true. It towers over the upper level of our house now . . . so what's that 35? 40 feet . . . . It's huge. It still will fill out quite a bit, but it's a great shade tree & the kids climb it all the time.
