Q.Fast Growing Shade Trees

Zone zone 8 | kat emr added on May 21, 2022 | Answered

have a inground pool in backyard, but no shade anywhere near it, pool deck or my upper deck (attached to house). it gets full sun all day and makes it so hot, cant walk on deck, sit out there, cant enjoy. there is a grassy area on one side of pool, but 2 sides only about 4ft from fence, 1 side is all concrete leading up to upper deck attached to house. what are some FAST growing shade, easy care trees to plant, wont interfere with pool (root system), and wont drop “tree trash” in the pool all the time? thanks!

It would appear that you could fill one of those requirements, but not the other. The fastest growing trees are, also, the worst with shedding, unfortunately.
