Some of the eucalyptus family have very attractive pale bark and lovely glaucous leaves , and they are certainly fast growing , check out the RHS website for further info.

Thanks--Exmothian--- have just bought an oak from RHS, and now 'cos I have the space ,am after a cockspur thorn, a member of the Hawthorn family.
Have 2 eucalyptus, and as you say they are wonderful.Realise that I shall not be around to see the oak reach maturity, but others will be.
what about dogwood? - not so tall, but wonderful red or yellow bark in the winter.
Question Author
Thanks boxtops -- love the dogwood , have a couple in and the red winter stems are just brilliant.
You must have a wonderful Acer if you haven't already got one:-)
I'd go for a laburnum - our neighbours have one and it is the most beautiful thing.
