Possible Caucasian Ash, London W2

Hi all,

 

Having a tricky time with this.

 

Initially thought it may be the Oxycarpa form of Narrow-leaved Ash (Caucasian Ash) but very unsure.

 

Any help greatly appreciated.

    Des,

     

    It is not F. oxycarpa because that has smooth bark and bright shiny green cuppedleaflets.

    It is not F. anguistifolia because the leaflets are not narrow enough.

     

    Have you considered Fraxinus americana?

        Des,

         

        Jolly good.

         

        In my mind's eye I can see you scurrying about the streets of London, interest peeked by one tree after another: first glimpsed in the distance, then scrutinised at progressively closer range until dismissed or deemed interesting. Keep it up!
