This is in a neighbors yard. He said it is a green ash but we all know things can be mislabeled. If it's a green ash it should be pennsylvanica but the leaves look to me more like americana (white or american ash). Can we sort this out?

Thanks Janet! I forgot to mention the underside of the leaves fit americana but I will have to go get a photo as I didn't photo that earlier.
