Which tree grow fast?

Mulberry trees grow rather fast. Some of the rings on one I chopped down last summer were about 1/2 an inch. They're hard to kill too. Very persistent.

Hybrid poplar can grow upwards of five feet a season. From what I have read these will also pump out the most potential BTU's per acre if you're interested in growing firewood.

Leyland Cypress is a very fast grower. One to two feet a year. But you didn't say what kind of tree. Deciduous (loses it's leaves) or evergreen (stays green all year long)

Leyland cypress is light-demanding but is tolerant of high levels of pollution and salt spray. A hardy, fast-growing natural hybrid, it thrives on a variety of soils and sites are commonly planted in gardens to provide a quick boundary or shelter hedge, because of their rapid growth. Although widely used for screening, it has not been planted much for forestry purposes. In both forms of the hybrid, Leyland cypress combines the hardiness of the Nootka or Alaska cypress with the fast growth of the Monterey cypress

You can go for thuja x green giant (https://www.instanthedge.com/thuja-green-giant) which not only grows fast but also provides instant privacy.

I agree Thuja "Green Giant" get huge and are very fast growing. We used them as privacy screen with the neighbors on one side of the house, and definetly regret using the standard arborvitae on the other. Should have gone Thuja all around instead of waiting years for the arborvitae to grow.
