About: Fraxinus americana, the White Ash, holds a special place in the ecology and culture of North America. Recognized for its tall, straight trunk and ash-gray bark, this tree has been historically valued for its timber, shaping the landscapes and industries of its native regions.

Regular watering, especially during dry periods, helps establish a healthy root system. Pruning, when necessary, can be done to maintain a balanced canopy.
