Green ash (Fraxinus pennsylvanica) are incredibly hardy, fast-growing, and adaptable deciduous trees that can thrive in almost any habitat in their native North America.Commonly planted in urban landscapes, they're one of the most popular and prolific ash species. Unfortunately, they're now prone to devasting and fast-spreading emerald ash borer (EAB) infestation.
Because of EAB, purposefully planting new green ash trees is generally not recommended and is even banned in some regions. You should check your state's regulations, and, even if there are no restrictions on growth, think carefully before you introduce a new green ash to your area. It may end up being subject to removal and could spread the disease to trees situated nearby.
