Singleleaf ash (Fraxinus anonala) is a native, deciduous, shrub or small tree ranging from 6.5 to 16.5 feet (2-5 m) tall with a maximum d.b.h (diameter at breast height) of 5 to 7 inches (12.5-17.8 cm) at maturity [10,14,25]. Leaves are simple to compound, and are 1.5 to 2 inches (4-5 cm) long and 1 to 2 inches (3-4 cm) wide.

It is found predominantly in the southwestern United States, occurring from southeastern California west to Colorado and south into Texas and northern Mexico [10,14,25].

The fruit is an indehiscent samara (a one or two unopened seeded winged fruit) 0.6 to 1.0 inch (1.5 to 2.5 cm) long and 0.24 to 0.32 inch (6-8 mm) wide. The bark is thin, and divided by shallow fissures into narrow, scaly ridges [10,14,19,25].

In tree form, singleleaf ash typically has a crooked trunk and rounded crown [25].
