|Lore||Its wood is exceptionally hard and became the traditional material for axe handles.|
|Average Size at Maturity||Fast grower to 35 to 40 ft. tall and wide.|
|Design Ideas||Try as a street tree, in the front yard, lined up in a windrow or as a single accent to shade a hot side of the house. Because its shape is more narrow and upright, this Ash is important for shade in dense housing developments.|

|Soil Needs||Tree & Shrub Food|
|Special Feature||Easy Care, Fall Color, Improved Pest and Disease Resistance, Waterwise|
|Watering Needs||Needs regular watering - weekly, or more often in extreme heat.|
|Companion Plants||Plant this Ash with some of the showier large trees such as Jacaranda (Jacaranda mimosifolia), Mimosa Tree (Albizia julibrissin 'Rosea') or Golden Rain Tree (Koelreuteria paniculata). Makes a good background accent for the smaller Newport Purple Leaf Plum (Prunus cerasifera 'Newport').|
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
