Green Ash

Green AshFraxinus pennsylvanica

Of the twelve ashes native to the US, green ash is the most widely distributed, mainly in the eastern U.S. A mature tree may be 60 ft. tall and 30 inches in diameter, with a very broad crown. The largest measured green ash is 95 feet tall, with a circumference of 21 feet 7 inches.

Green ash is widely planted as an ornamental because of its beautiful natural form, and it is particularly popular as a shade tree. Its wood is used for baseball bats and tool handles, but is not as desirable for these purposes as white ash.
