2 Blue Ash Kingdom of the Blue Ash is Plantae The subkingdom is Tracheobionata The super division is Spermatophyta The division is Magnoliophyte The class is Magnoliophyta The subclass is Asteridae

3 The order is Scrophulariales The family is Oleacea The genus is Fraxinus The species Fraxinus Quadrangulata

4 Figure 1 The shaded area is where the tree can be found more specifically its habitat is near limestone because of the PH level from it.

5  It can be up to 80 feet tall  Can get up to 40 feet wide  Is considered narrow upright or rounded upright  Can be a very good tree for shade Figure 2 shows the tree being in a very straight position

6 Its bark is very different from other ash trees because this trees bark looks shingled or flaky as it gets older Figure 3 Picture of a Blue Ash’s bark Figure 4 Picture of the fruit of a blue ash The tree is both male and female so a tree can pollinate it self and produce seeds. The seeds of a Blue Ash are flatter then the other Ash’s tree.

7  The leaves are pinnately compound and have several leaves usually 7-11 leaves that are opposites, aren’t alternated. The leaflets margins can vary, they can be toothed smooth or serrated finely. Figure 5 A Blue Ash leaf shown, it is narrow but can also be wide leafed.

8  The flower is a small flower that blooms with the leaves and doesn’t have petals.  It’s a perfect flower meaning it has both male and female characteristics.  Very unnoticeable in general Figure 6 The flower is at the end of the ash tree, is very unnoticeable and not much to look at

9  Early pioneers used its inner bark to make a blue dye, when the inner bark was exposed to air it turned blue.  Now the Blue Ash is used similarly to the White Ash for its wood to make tools and baseball bats and furniture because it is so dense. Figure 7 A baseball bat made out of Ash wood

10  The most noticeable difference in the Blue Ash is that its twigs are very rectangular. This disappears as the twig grows.  This picture also shows the bud at the end which is horseshoe shaped. Figure 8 This picture clearly shows how the sides of the twig are like a rectangle and the horseshoe shape the bud has
