I have found some specimens of Fraxinus americana on our property with dramatic trunk movement. I understand it is not a favorite species for bonsai, but a web search has shown me some people with credible specimens of this ash. The first of these, F. am a I inadvertainly ran the brush hog over it before I discovered it a few weeks ago. Since I cleaned off the shredded top and noted a new bud starting. The specimens b-d are growing along a small brook. I have been cutting many young ash trees down to release wild apple trees and because of EAB, I see little future as saw logs for these abundant young ash trees. So my question is would one or more of these young ash be worth collecting in the spring. I suppose the plan would be to chop fairly low and collect in early spring. Tree c is quite a small caliber, small enough to be bent by wiring. The others are between 1 and 1.5 inches in diameter.
