These Androscoggins are remarkable in what they do! They grow remarkably fast at 6 inches per week when the temperature is above 75 degrees.
They are really lush tropical looking trees with very pretty, shiny, dark green leaves with red veins that are 8 inches wide and 8 inches long on the growing tips. The leaves on the inner part of the tree are 3-4 inches wide and long. Used for shade mainly where it grows to be 35 feet to 40 feet wide and 70 feet to 75 feet tall. Also works well for a thick screen and/or windbreak by placing them 8-10 feet apart. The lifespan is 40 years. That is remarkable for such a fast growing tree.
This will be the 23rd year of sharing these Androscoggins with the fine people in 13 states. We have seen what they do in all the areas. From the 125 degree heat along the Colorado River basin in AZ (where they grow 8-9 feet per year) to the 8,000-9,500 foot elevation of Colorado (where they grow 6-8 feet per year). In other parts of AZ and in California, New Mexico, Texas, and in other states as well they have been growing 8-13 feet per year. Where the growing season is less, and the heat is less, the growth is 6-8 feet per year.
