Fraxinus angustifolia "Raywood"
The tree in the title is a large Ash, which looks good at all seasons, especially autumn, when it turns dark purple.
I haven't seen any affected by ash die-back, and most of the ordinary Ash trees around here do show signs.
All trade in all Fraxinus spp is banned.
Would it be ethical to acquire a UK-grown specimen? If yes, anyone suggest somewhere / someone?
How could you propagate one, bearing in mind that all existing examples that I know are on roadside verges, so no air-layering, or whatever, is possible?
