    Does anyone have any trees we can remove and transplant for landscaping our property with. Any ever-green type of trees good for creating shade.
    Thank you.

    talisay.jpg I recommend you to look out for a Talisay tree, they grow relatively fast, they are undemanding (they grow up everywhere, even at the beach, and don't need much water), and they spend great shadow later on. you can also trim the branches in any form or direction you like. doesn't have any fruits except a kind of nuts, our dogs like them to chew on them. if you find a big Talisay tree just search under it, there are many sprouts to take out. Never pay anything for a young tree, they are available everywhere for free, maybe just ask the property owner before you take out some. you don't want to get shot for a tree. if you don't find any just txt me, we have a lot around here.

    Thank you for your informative response. Do you have any bigger than a sprout, as we are searching for some size that can provide some immediate shade and appeal.
    Will definitely take up on your advice on talking before digging. Thanks.

    Hardly possible to plant a tree that gives shadow already. Mostly bigger trees do not like to get transfered from one place to another, they will probably die, but it is not impossible if you dig out the complete root with soil, but that's a good piece of work. Sometimes the plant sellers in and around Valencia have bigger trees in pots. Be patient for about 3 years and you will have shadow when you plant sprouts now, the rainy season is the best time. Btw, the common Gmelina tree is also growing fast, Acacia is a beautiful tree and the Mango gives you great shadow and fruits.

    You can grow Leucania, Ipil-ipil, and it will grow very fast, Eucalyptus does as well but both have their limits as shade trees. Transplanting trees probably won't save you any time from planting a potted one, the transplanting process slows the growth so that even if the transplant is bigger intially, after a year the potted tree will outgrow it.

    We are growing one in our garden for shade, it's about 3 years old and already 30 feet tall. They have broad leaves ideal for shade. The locals call them umbrella trees and for good reason.

    Trees. We do need trees to combat the effects of global warming. I wonder why some people are cutting them when they are a big help to us.

    Cutting trees is not the problem. The problem is not having the foresight to plant new trees. Cutting the trees and making things from the lumber is a form of carbon capture where carbon is removed from the environment and sequestered long term.

    I read of the INGA tree http://www.ingafoundation.org/the-inga-tree/
    which is fast growing, good for shade, a source of firewood and has edible fruits (some species) PLUS it is a nitrogen-fixer (a bonus to improve soil fertility without using artificial chemicals).

    It is very common in humid tropical America but does anyone know if it exists in the Philippines? The conditions here are correct for its growth.
