Oleaceae -- Olive family

    Harvey E. Kennedy, Jr.

    Green ash (Fraxinus pennsylvanica), also called red ash,  swamp ash, and water ash, is the most widely distributed of all  the American ashes. Naturally a moist bottom land or stream bank  tree, it is hardy to climatic extremes and has been widely  planted in the Plains States and Canada. The commercial supply is  mostly in the South. Green ash is similar in property to white  ash and they are marketed together as white ash. The large seed  crops provide food to many kinds of wildlife. Due to its good  form and resistance to insects and disease, it is a very popular  ornamental tree.
