Blue Ash Trees

Blue Ash Trees

Blue ash trees are large landscaping trees which are not commonly seen in local nurseries. They are famous for their attractive blossoms and green foliage. They prefer locations with slightly alkaline well-drained soil types and full sunlight to grow healthy and happily. In hot summer days, they can provide a large area of shades which can cool off your house. Their ability to tolerate a certain unpleasant conditions like drought and compact location make them good candidates for landscaping purposes.

Blue ash trees are fast-growing trees which can grow up to 70 feet in height. They have upright trunk with a large oval sized canopy. They have male and female flowers growing in the same tree, making it easier to pollinate for fruits. Their fruits are forming in clusters and the size is generally less than 2 inches. The dark green foliage will turn into yellow in autumn, adding extra ornamental values to your fall garden.

Like other as trees, blue ash trees are susceptible to some pests like lilac bore and all webworm. They got their name from the gelatinous substance on its bark which make it appear in blue. These substances are usually used as dye by ancient people.
