The Green Ash tree is a native American tree that was first discovered growing near Philadelphia, PA. in 1790 by the famous American botanist, John Bartram. It is very unusual to find a tree as cold hardy as the Green Ash tree that thrives in the USDA zones 2-9. The Green Ash tree is one of the most popular fast growing trees in the United States and quickly provides a cooling shade in city parks, commercial building and homes.
• One reason that the Green Ash tree is such an important shade tree is that it is so easy to live when transplanted during the dormant stage. The Green Ash tree shows an almost 95% survivability rate. The mature height of this tree is about 80 feet. Even though the Green Ash tree is found growing near wet areas in American native forests, it also withstands drought conditions in deserts. In the western United States the Green Ash tree is planted in long hedge rows as a windbreak to protect farm land. The Green Ash tree is highly adapted to most soils, both very acid soils and very alkaline soils.
