1 in 6 trees in Denver are ash trees

And if we do nothing, it’s just a matter of time before they’ll ALL be devoured by the emerald ash borer. But who wants to be a Debbie Downer when you can Be A Smart Ash?

Do you have an ash tree?

There are simple ways to identify ash trees:

  • Opposite branching – meaning a branch protruding from a tree limb has a mate protruding from the exact opposite side of the limb
  • Compound leaves – defined by having more than one leaflet per leaf connecting to a stem that has a bud at its base
  • Diamond-pattern bark – mature ash trees have distinct diamond patterns on their bark

Do you want to save your ash tree?
