A politician needs the ability to foretell what is going to happen tomorrow, next week, next month, and next year. And to have the ability afterwards to explain why it didn't happen.

Ash

Fraxinus

This is a group of trees that grows about 50 feet high. The leaf is pinnate (feather like structure) with 5 to 9 leaflets. Seed is a one winged samara. (Think: 1/2 of a maple helicopter.

They grow at a moderate rate (1-2 feet a year) with a life span of around 50 years.

Cultivars

Plains Green ash: Drought tolerant. Short term flood tolerant too. Often planted as a shelterbelt tree. Tough as nails. One of the last trees to break bud in spring, and one of the first ones to change in fall. Fall colour is a nice clear yellow. Zone 2

Northern Treasure Ash: A hybrid of native black ash (F. nigra) and Manchurian ash (F. mandshurica) Gets to 50 feet x 30 feet, upright oval crown. Some resistance to Emerald Ash borer.

Nobility White Ash: Similar in size to Northern Treasure, but leaves go purple red in the fall.

Prairie Spire Green ash: A selection of green ash that is seedless, and very drought and cold tolerant.

Ash trees in eastern Canada are in trouble due to a critter called emerald ash borer.
