If you read the forum you wil find a reference about Melia Dubia wich is a real tropical tree that grows fast similar to Paulownia.

This year they started growing earlyer than last year.
Il have to clean the side branches.
Normally i should have cut them to the ground so that the trunk grows taller than what it is now .Its called a technical cut but i can do that next year or after manny years also.
