Fast Growing trees for zone 11?

Hey , I need a fast growing tree for zone 11

The tree that shades my shade garden is dying.

I was reading about Royal Empress Tree but I don't think it will grow in zone 11

Palm trees? Gumbo limbo, tulip tree (tulip poplar), cottonwood, basswood/ linden.

All grow natively in Florida and are relatively fast growing.

The Royal Empress tree grows well in zones 5-11 Very pretty and gives great height in it's first years growth. Here is a site for Royal Empress
