Do I have an ash tree in my home or neighborhood?

Ash trees can be found almost everywhere. They were planted in cities and towns to replace American elm trees that died from Dutch elm disease. Once you learn a few key features, ash trees are easy to identify.

"Distinguishing Ash from Other Common Trees"     (Michigan State University)

If you do not have an ash tree, there is no need to worry. Emerald ash borers attack only true ash trees. (Fraxinus spp.)
