Florida Shade Trees Suggestions

I live in florida and want to put in some shade trees, i would like something that would grow fast and doesn't lose to many leaves if that is possible. Any suggestions?

The maple tree I planted was very pretty, but only provides light shade. Laurel oaks are less popular now because they are more likely to blow down in a hurricane. I heard they also have a relatively short lifespan. I think some kind of oak tree is still your best bet.

Note: Find out where your sewer lines are before planting any tree with a deep root system. In six years of growth it can end up costing you $4000 to replace your sewer lines.

I would also plant the tree well away from your roof. When I moved here last summer, the previous owner had staked a baby oak tree one foot from a bedroom window. If left to grow there it would had damaged the foundation of the house.
