The Q&A Archives: Preventing Ash Tree seed pods

Question: Is there any way of preventing Ash tree seed growth? Neighbors (and I) are getting tired of them falling and being wind carried all over our properties from the Majestic Ash in my front yard. I was hoping for something like the spray used to prevent olives from forming, but haven't been able to turn up anything on the WEB. Thank you.

Answer: There really is no way of regulating seed development in your Majestic Ash. Wish I had better news for you! The only way to totally prevent seed development is to prune the tree immediately after flowering to remove the potential for setting seeds.

Best wishes with your landscape!
