Hi Elpato, Welcome!

I think that tree is a Fraxinus species but I'm not sure. I'm not real familiar with Fraxinus and I don't know which variety might grow in your area. We have quite a few listed here in our database: https://garden.org/plants/sear...

Thank you, and that does look likely. I'll have a trawl through some local varieties.

I did a bit of googling and found these species that apparently grow in England:

Common Ash (Fraxinus excelsior)

Flowering Ash (Fraxinus ornus)

Raywood Ash (Fraxinus angustifolia 'Raywood')

Thank you!

I'd just been doing the same. I think it's Excelesior since that seems the most common round here. Looks like it's got a fair bit of growing left to do too.

Definitely doesn't get that wonderful red the last one does, sadly.
