Or how about Hackberries or white oaks?

Diversification, no?

That's a great idea...assuming that resistant ash trees exist.

I found out 1 month ago I'm allergic to Ash trees. My point of view is goodbye to the ash tree!

Of the common canopy trees in Minnesota, the Ash is the latest to leaf out in the spring, and among the first to drop leaves in the fall, thereby extending the appearance of winter. They should be banned in this State for that reason alone.

gee swgritt, that leaf habit you describe would be a positive thing if you have an ash as shade aka seasonal obstruction of solar -- active or passive. So for that reason I hope somebody can develop/discover a resistant ash.

sense of humor!!! I am starting to dislike all leaved trees. They shed their leaves like tears. Even by beloved birch and weeping willow trees.
