The Texas Ash is native to the counties surrounding the Dallas – Ft. Worth Metroplex and south through central Texas. The Texas Ash is a very beautiful shade tree with a rounded crown that is reminiscent of a Chinese Pistachio. When established the Texas Ash is easy to maintain because of its superior level of drought tolerance and low fertilizer requirements. The Texas Ash has 2 to 4 inch long rounded leaves that have a medium to fine texture and retain a deep green color. In the fall the Texas Ash produces a spectacular range of pastel colors that include yellow, orange, red, purple and maroon. Younger Texas Ash trees produce a very smooth and light gray bark and as Texas Ash trees mature their bark appears medium to dark gray with shallow fissures.
