Baby Ash Tree Stow Away

MayLaneMayLane Posts: 203

I have a baby Ash tree growing in a pot which must be a stow away from when we moved a year ago. We had a large tree is our old garden. 

We don't have room for it in our smaller garden but I can't bring myself to kill it. Any ideas what I can do with it?

    How about donating it to a local school that has its own nature trail/garden/wild life area?

    Plant it somewhere in your yard and enjoy it until it gets too big, then move house and leave it as someone else's problem?
