Very clearly opposite arrangement of compound leaves, and buds are opposite along the stems - so Ash (Fraxinus sp.) is correct.

I would absolutely rule out Walnut (Juglans sp.) and Butternut (another Juglans sp.) and all the Hickories - since they all have alternate arrangement of pinnate compound foliage and never opposite.

General character of crown branching fits normal Ash look as well.

Yes, an Ash. Might be Modesto Ash.

@stone @ViburnumValley @daisyl

Thanks so much you guys! This is great news!

My friend very much wanted to garden within the drip line, and we were worried it might be a black walnut (she really likes growing tomatoes, so that would have been unfortunate!). So glad to hear it's an Ash.

Again, thanks for all your help and quick attention -- love this site!
