Plant Identification

Most ash species are deciduous and commonly seen as street trees and larger garden trees. Their size varies by species, but they are usually large and grow between 40 and 60 feet.

Optimum conditions for growth

Fraxinus spp. are fast growing trees and widely adaptable to various climates and soil types. They grow best in full sun. Most species do best with regular watering except flowering ash, Oregon ash, and foothill ash, which do best with infrequent summer water.
