White Ash
Kentucky Coffeetree

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.

The Kentucky Coffeetree has the largest leaves of any native tree in North America! In the summer, its large green canopy provides shade. While in the winter, its leathery bean pods act as a decorative element against the sky as they rattle in the wind. Beautiful year-round, this tree is an elegant addition to any landscape.
