GREEN ASH     Fraxinus pensylvanica

The Green Ash is widely used as a tall shade tree and boulevard tree. It is native to our area and, thus, very hardy and reliable. It's a real landscape workhorse.

Shade tree: Height 12m (40ft).

Foliage: Leaves are born in groups of seven. Forms a dense canopy.

Fruit: Each tree is male or female. Only the female trees bear seeds that usually stay on the tree over winter and constitute a food supply for some birds.

Fall Colour: Yellow.

Comments: The green ash is a large reliable drought resistant tree. It is equally at home in the front yard or the farm shelterbelt.
