Identify this tree or plant... #804868

Asked August 05, 2022, 6:29 PM EDT

I would like to know what this tree or plant is. It is growing on the edge of a small wetland area behind my home in Maple Grove, MN. It is about 8 feet tall and I took a photo of it and of its leaves. Thank you, Pat Fountinelle

Thanks for the question.

We believe that this is a green ash (Fraxinus pennsylvanica). It is, unfortunately, susceptible to infestation from the Emerald Ash Borer. See:
