Fraxinus excelsior or Ash is a tree that prefers to grow in alkaline soils, and cool and moist climates. It grows vastly throughout Europe and can cover up to 1400 metres of land. It can reach thirty-five metres high and three metres in circumference at its base and can live for 150-200 years. This tree has reddish flowers whose petals arise later in the year from shiny black buds. Although the fruit only matures in September, it remains attached to the tree to spread only in winter or spring.[1]
