Fast growing shade tolerant tree

I'm about to remove a large Boxelder tree in my backyard, Northern Illinois zone 5b. It is planted in a raised garden overlooking my lawn. I really want another tree there as soon as possible. The yard has forest on all sides, and is thus shaded in the mornings and afternoon. It does get some overhead sun in the middle of the day. All the fastest growing tree species I have researched need full sun. Is there something shade tolerant that grows fast?
