Hello! I live in Reno, Nevada and have just had a new patio installed in my back yard. This area gets full sun all year long and I am looking for a fast growing, strong shade tree. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Golden raintree is fast growing; Leyland cypress is an evergreen and very fast growing; sweet acacia and desert willow are also good choices. Hope one of these is just right for your landscape.
