Tree identification

Hi all

Just wondering if you can id this tree for me. It's growing next to my boundary and can be a right pain when all the seed pods fall off and the winds blowing in the wrong direction.

    That's an ash. I'd disappear into an ash wood if I didn't keep weeding them out

    Thanks nutcutlet.

    I wasn't aware it was an ash.

    They are a right pain in the ****. Seedings everywhere. Even growing in my leaf mould bags.


  • yes, afraid so Disponded--but it will probably come down with ash blight sooner or later so you could regard it as a dinosaur...They are rather lovely trees.

    Lovely trees, and important in the ancient folklore of this country.  We've had to have one of ours felled ... we hope the other survives. 

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.
