Notes: Modesto Ash, Fraxinus velutina 'Modesto,' can grow to be a majestic shade tree with glossy green leaves turning to a bright golden yellow in the fall that can light up any landscape! This tree is deciduous so that it can let the warmth of the sun in during winter and cast plenty of shade when the temperatures start to heat up in the summer! This cultivar was developed in Merced, California, and is valued for its glossy foliage and broad spreading crown. They also have a fast growth rate, and we like to plant them in any landscape as a street tree where they are sure to add curb appeal!
