Green Ash

Green Ash

Fraxinus pennsylvanica

Probably the most rugged, versatile and planted tree used in cold climates as it is supremely hardy. Green foliage throughout the season turning to a brilliant yellow in fall. One of the last trees to leaf out in the spring and one of the first to loose its leaves in the fall. Deer do not particularly care for this plant and will leave it alone in favour of other tasty treats.
