Oregon Ash is a tree of the meadows and stream banks of the Willamette Valley in Oregon. In California this ash is usually in more sheltered locations. It takes centuries to become a 150 ft. specimen in Oregon; in California it is more commonly a small tree. In most California gardens I'd not expect it to exceed 30-40 ft. in fifty years. In a ten-year garden, maybe 25 ft.. Although it is a decent hardwood, it is used as fuel. "It splits easily, burns readily, and has a high caloric value almost the equal of Eastern White Oak" ( Peattie, Donald. 1953. A Natural History of Western Trees. ). The smaller, younger trees have better wood for furniture. Syn. Fraxinus oregona, F. americana subsp. oregona, Fraxinus oregona var. latifolia, Fraxinus pennsylvanica subsp. oregona.)
