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.)

Fraxinus latifolia tolerates seasonal flooding.

Fraxinus latifolia's foliage type is deciduous.
