The White Ash Tree is one of the largest of the ash trees, growing to 115 ft. tall. It is native to eastern North American hardwood forests and also found in mesophytic forests from Quebec to northern Florida. The wood is white, strong, and straight-grained. The name White Ash apparently derives from the glaucous undersides of the leaves. The White Ash Tree grows best in deep, well drained soil and needs to be planted in full sun.
