Usefulness and services of the tree :
Features and characters of the individual
Contrary to what its name might suggest, this specie of ash is not really that “common” here. Trees of this species are amongst the largest hardwood trees in the region. This tree has found a spot that suits it well: in the middle of a block of houses. It soars up high in the sky. There’s a reason why its Latin name is “Fraxinus excelsior”: “excelsior” means “tall”/“high” in Latin. This tree’s crown is taller than the surrounding houses, so much so that the street’s name when translated to English means “Ash Street”.
