Oh well,

No answer so I will answer with the Ash I know. Fraxinus angustifolia or Desert ash.

Here is a piece of nursery stock before work similar to one I worked on a few years ago.

Here also is a pic of the leaf and the possible reduction after defoliation and various techniques.

Here is the ash after a few years work from rough nursery stock and after its second potting.

Very nice formon ha one, Grant. Is it grafted?

Dave

No it is not grafted; it is one I grew from seed and is only 12 years old.

The branches/trunk above the corky area is only about 5 years old and so has not become rough/corky yet.

Very nice Grant.

I have a couple of I think they are Korean Mt. Ash, not sure how they will work out, the leave do reduce some, not sure about what I'll do with the pinnate leaves. They may be destined for yard trees.
