Searching for Ash
Later I hiked up on top of the bluff. I fought my way through some Asian bush honeysuckle. When I came to the trees I saw they were ash.
Finding a seed on the gound I will use that as the method of IDing these trees.
Its white ash.
Getting there is half the fun. There were trails but I shyed away from on the cliff edge.
Here is the wolf tree Chinquipin that I have posted earlier. I went by it looking for the Ash trees near the blufs edge. I had posted about this tree earlier. Link to prior post.
Here is a link showing the difference between 4 major ash trees you can compare the seeds
Here are some pointers on collecting ash seeds.
Here is a link that helps you decipher if a tree is an ash tree.
Here is another link that helps distingues ash from other common similar trees.
