Well there are lots of variables with pH, soil fertility, and the amount of sunlight being the main factors. If all these factors are good we commonly see trees 12'-15' in five years. I would highly recommend a soil test as they are not expensive, they tell you what you need to know to make decisions on what to add to the soil to help plants grow to their full potential. Sandy soils usually benefit greatly with soil amendments. Thank you for the question!
