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.
