Dakota Centennial™ Ash -- Fraxinus pennsylvanica ‘Wahpeton’ (RFM-06)



Male, seedless fast-growing green ash cultivar with a growth rate of 2.4 feet annually over a ten-year period. Produces an excurrent, elliptical to pyramidal-shaped tree, becoming wider and less formal in growth habit with age. It tends to maintain terminal dominance with uniform scaffold branch arrangement. If co-dominant leaders develop at a point lower than 12 to15 feet in height, the competing leader of lesser quality should be properly pruned or removed soon after it forms. Bright, glossy green foliage becomes dark green and semi-glossy as it hardens. Fall color is a deep yellow. USDA hardiness zone 3. Reaches semi-mature height of 40-48 feet in 25 to 30 years. Available in the commercial nursery trade.
