Beautiful Ornamental Ash Trees
The ash trees are popular ornamental trees that belongs to the lilac family. Ash trees are attractive deciduous trees which are great for landscaping large open spaces. Depending on the place of origin, a large number of species exist. One can find that species of ash trees can have purple, yellow, or red leaves during fall, with large clusters of winged seeds. Ash trees have a beautiful round crown, which looks good in most open spaces. Young ash trees have a flat-grayish looking bark. Older ones have a furrowed bark making it look rough, that has a bluish-gray tint to it. There are different types of leaves and to distinguish one from another, it is required that you examine them carefully. An ash tree usually has a compound leaf, that is, it has more than one leaflet, usually several attached to the same leaf stalk. The leaflets grow along a common axis making the leaf look like a feather. Ash trees are opposite-bearing, which means that the leaflets and the leaves are opposite to each other. The leaves usually have a minimum of 5 leaflets and a maximum of 11 leaflets.
In winters, when most deciduous trees shed their leaves, identification by buds is quite helpful. Ash tree buds are opposite bearing, which means if you find one bud, exactly opposite to that would be another. They have ‘lateral’ and ‘terminal’ buds. Lateral buds are the ones which are on the each side of the branch if you look at the tree from top to bottom. The terminal bud is present on the tip of every branch. The buds are broad and the length is about quarter of an inch.
