Woody nodules Review by Neighbor
My neighbor has had her tree for around 10 years. It's a lovely tree, but this year it has developed hard, woody nodules in the lower branches. any idea what these might be? The tree looks very healthy otherwise. She fertilizes it every Spring.
Cimmaron Ash Review by Scott
I live in the Chicagoland area, and I love my ash. I planted it in 2003 and it is now finally growing like crazy and the fall color gets better every year....I highly recommend this tree.
Beatiful tree Review by ztcamp
I have seen this beautiful tree before, the foliage is impresive is a magnificent seedless with strong, upright branches that are resistant to storm and snow damage, we do not get snow in our area, but gets could in the winter. My problem is that I dont know if I can plant it in sandy soil, I live in Florida west coast.what do you mean by "but it does not like poor compacted soils"

<p><strong><font size=1>Answer from Nature Hills:</strong> Poor compacted soil is just the opposite of light sandy soil. Compacted means clay or clay mixtures that are quite dense and reduce drainage and new root penetration. </p></font><br>
