American White Ash Tree - An endangered and beautiful native tree. 2 years old and 3-4 feet tall!
- Planting an American White Ash brings us one tree closer to saving one of our most important and beloved native trees from the brink of extinction! An invasive beetle native to Asia, named the Emerald Ash Borer, has decimated entire forests of American White Ash trees in the Northeastern United States. These trees are an crucial part of the natural ecosystem, sustaining all manner of local wildlife, but have no defense against this invasive pest since they developed on separate continents over time. With tens of millions of American White Ash trees already destroyed, planting them in your landscape could make all the difference in saving an essential native species!
- American White Ash trees are famously resilient and can even grow in land which is flooded for three months out of the year! For this reason, American White Ash are an excellent choice for erosion control.
