    The botanical name for these type of trees is: Fraxinus Genus and the common name is "Ash". There a many Ash tree varieties.

  • The Raywood Ash (Fraxinus oxycarpa), Bonita, Arizona and Modesto ash trees do excellent in the desert southwest. They are drought tolerant - moderate to fast growing and provide excellent shade. They are considered good hardy trees for commerical or home landscaping.

    One good tip to remember is the more water you give them the faster they will grow. The height and width varies with each type of tree overall they should grow to about 40-60' in height and about 30-40' in width.

    You should prune your ash trees during the fall season. Ash trees are moderate to fast growing and once extablished require little water.

    Dead twigs and branches can be removed anytime of the year. Borers can be a problem with many types of Ash Trees.

    You should inspect your trees at twice per year for evidence of borer's. Small holes about the size of a pencial are evidence or borer's.
