If you're looking for a good shade tree and are considering an Ash, this is a good one. 'Northern Treasure' is fruitless so there's no messy seed drop, and it's highly resistant to the Emerald Ash Borer.
*When planting any full-sized Ash as a shade tree, do not place it less than forty feet from your foundation! This species will mature to massive proportions, with a very wide and broadening branch structure. At maturity some branches become rather spongy and branch drop is common, most notably subsequent to a heavy rainfall.
