I found this tree growing in an old pot.
Anyone know what it is?
I want to plant it somewhere in the woods or something. Where’s best for it?

Cheers

Hi Ga,

What region are you located in? How old is the tree? It looks alot like an Ash, but I would need to know more information, to be certian what species it is.

Hi, I am in South Wales, UK :)
The tree can't be any older than a few months. This time last year, everything in my pots died off, as we had a lot of unexpected sun and no rain. I have been going through my garden trying to resurrect and replace whatever I find. I don't know how this tree got into the pot, but I'd like to plant it somewhere.

I agree it is an ash.

BTW, you have a beautiful malamute.  What do you call it?

Hi Ga,

Well so far everyone thinks its an Ash. It seems a bit big to have not survived as a seedling from last spring, maybe going into early leaf drop as a fairly small seedling for that drought? Regardless, Ash do grow quickly, maybe you just have great permaculture nutrients....lol!  Anyway, I would plan on it growing up to over 40ft tall, and being as wide when mature. So hopefully that might help you plan out eventual spacing. I would also plan on it growing up to 15-20 ft fairly quickly, say within 10 years under average to favorable conditions.

I hope that helps!
