Do I Have an Ash Tree?

Protect Your Ash Trees from Emerald Ash Borer

The effects of emerald ash borer on Colorado’s urban forests will be felt for generations to come. The good news is, we can protect our trees, if we’re informed and proactive.
Find out if you have an ash tree below…

1. Does the tree have compound leaves with 5 to 11 leaflets?
2. Are the branches and buds in pairs directly across from each other (opposite branching)?
3. Have you seen paddle shaped seed pods  (seeds are on female ash trees)?
4. What’s the bark look like? Mature bark has diamond-shaped ridges.

If you believe you have an ash tree, it’s important to meet with a professional to discuss your options. Please contact us to have a Landscape Care Consultant provide a complimentary consultation.
