How long does it take to grow a tree from seed?

This can be a lot faster than you might think. Every species that we sell is different but with many you can have a respectable landscape tree in less than 10 years. The warmer your climate the faster that you will have a large tree. Here are a few examples of average rates of growth. If you are in zone 6 it will take about this long to get a 6 foot tall tree from seed.
