Caring for Fraxinus americana

  • The emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis), a beetle native to Asia, is a serious threat to Fraxinus species in North America.
  • It is thought to have been introduced to North America in wooden packing material and in 2002 was identified as the cause of the decline and mortality of ash trees that had been noted in the Detroit (Michigan) metropolitan area.
  • It has since caused extensive damage to ash trees in the USA and Canada, killing an estimated 30 million trees.
  • It has now been discovered in the region of Moscow and there is concern it could spread to the rest of Europe, leading to further economic and ecological damage.
  • Much work is hence being carried out to prevent the spread of this beetle to protect ash trees.

Typical uses of Fraxinus americana

Special features: Planting new ash trees is no longer recommended given the susceptibility of this tree to the emerald ash borer.

Culinary use: na

Ornamental use: White ash is planted as an ornamental tree in parks and large gardens. Cultivars such as Fraxinus americana ‘Autumn Purple’ provide a variety of autumn leaf colours.
