Having trouble identifying a group of street trees in NW London. Sorry, no bark photo as camera battery died.
Any help much appreciated.
This could be one that crops up in field botany quizzes sometimes...
Single-leaved ash, Fraxinus excelsior 'Diversifolia'
Mentioned here, eg. - http://www.hainaultforest.co.uk/5Ash.htm
I knew of one in Sefton Park, Liverpool, in the 1970s.
If you can't see new ones, see if you can find old ash 'keys' on the ground below the tree.
Then check there are no other ash trees nearby.
