I'm not sure where you live but you might check this list of trees and see if anything strikes your fancy - http://www.fast-growing-trees.com/FastestTrees.htm

The Empress grows quickly here, keep it's lower branches trimmed early and use some good hammock straps to protect whatever tree you decide to use.

Im in an arid tropical environment, here it never rains but i have a lot of water comming from a channel.

It would be cool that the tree can have another functions as fix nitrogen or generate fertility.

Which one in your list can fix nitrogen? Is there fast growing trees that fix nitrogen?

Acacia and luceana might work.
 
Why should I lose weight? They make bigger overalls. And they sure don't make overalls for tiny ads:
