White Ash
Manchurian Walnut

White Ash is a large deciduous tree that's often grown in residential yards and along boulevards.

Similar to Green Ash, White Ash is distinguished by the lighter colour of the undersides of the leaves.

While Green Ash turns gold in the fall, White Ash turns a gorgeous burgundy.

Manchurian Walnut is a large, broad and often multi-stemmed tree with ornamental qualities. This tree produces large, thick-shelled nuts that ripen in the fall. These edible walnuts are reportedly difficult to crack open. They are useful for attracting wildlife, especially squirrels.

The Manchurian Walnut contains and exudes much lesser quantities of allelopathic compounds, such as juglone (common to walnuts), that may prevent or impair growth of nearby plants. Therefore, it is commonly embraced as a safe walnut to plant.

There are reports of rare this species surviving winters to -45C with specimens growing and thriving in Alaska and Edmonton.

There is no regular supply of this species. It is rare and not produced each year.
