What are some fast-growing trees?


I'm actually buying 32 seedlings from:

http://www.coldstreamfarm.net/default.aspx

Pretty good prices
I'm ordering 8 species - 4 of each, total of 32 trees

3 different birch species
Sequoia, Dawn redwood
The buttonwood, Aspen, & redbud

Sizes anywhere from 6-12" (sequoai) up to 2-3' for most

I had a birch 12" seedling grow to 15' in 2 years at my last house
Others only grew to 8-9' in the same time frame

Not sure on the specific type
It was over 10 years ago
But it was sandy/gravel mixed soil about 7' from the road
Rainwater used to wash off the road
I guess it liked the conditions
