Should I grow a Shamel Ash tree?


Answer by  artilallonline (48)

The Shamel ash roots and branches have invasive growth rate and can damage the area where you plant them. You need to watch and prune them.

No! Do not plant one, we gather lbs. of seeds from the neighbors 80' tree and pull thousands of seedlings. Our local creek is packed with these weed trees.
There are many non invasive trees to select.  add a comment

Yes you should grow it. These trees turn out to be quite beautiful. I actually have one in my backyard and everyone comments me on it every time they see it.

If you have the space to grow a Shamel Ash tree then go for it. But make sure it is in proper sun and tempeture.

This tree can grow up to be very large and the roots grow near the surface. Make sure you put it were it won't grow up and ruin a good sidewalk.

NO, the female plant is a breeder. Our local creeks are filled with them. Our neighbors are drowning in seeds and seedlings. Any fast growing tree will become a problem. Contact master gardeners, they will tell you the best trees to plant.
