Description

This presentation describes the silvics of green ash (Fraxinus pennsylvanica), pumpkin ash (F. profunda), Carolina ash (F. caroliniana), and white ash (F. americana). Green ash is the primary ash species in southern bottomlands. Pumpkin ash and Carolina ash are relatively minor species with limited ranges that occur on very wet bottomland sites. White ash is the primary ash species in the loessial hills and on other upland sites across the South.
