Golden Autumn

Ash trees are amazing.  Simple trees.

                                         A tree that provides contrast next to a eucalyptus.

                                                  A tree that provides shade during the summer.
                                                           And color during the fall.

                           If you live in Tucson, it can be grown and will add punch to your landscape. 
                             Do keep this tree at least 15 feet away from your house as branches
                                                     can and will fall during a wind storm.


  1. What pretty leaves. I've always heard ash is a hardwood. I'm surprised the wind breaks it easily.

  2. This particular ash is pretty good here in Tucson, but I think because of the heat and extreme hurricane winds here during monsoon, they can be at times dangerous to homeowners that have driveways etc.


Thanks for stopping by!
