If growing from seed, it will be *many* years before wind would be an issue.
Having said that, these trees get pretty large over time-- combine that with
their general poor shoing in the fall and relatively unattractive winter
habit, and you get a tree best left to very large estates, golf courses,
Just my opinion of course...
from email@example.com (Peter Hight) contains these words:
IME, even young trees (10 ft +) lose branches to wind, then the wound
becomes an ingress point for rot or disease and creates a weak spot for
future wind damage.
They have such large leaves that they are vulnerable to wind and mature
trees are known for dropping large branches, so not a good choice for
exposed areas, especially near buildings or roads.
Nothing much will grow in their shade, either.
