"trash trees" are trees that have short life spans, grow very fast,

I can think of legitimate reasons to want a tree like that. For

place, then moving on. You'd like to have fairly tall trees in some
of those places, and not just "twigs" that will someday be nice for
some future resident.

trees that drop a large

Hey - that's mulch!

I guess I have nothing against "trash trees".

Thanks for the good answers.
