**NOTE: This species is not recommended for planting due to the approach of emerald ash borer to Alberta.**
Green ash trees were such a popular choice for hardy boulevard trees in years past that a moratorium was placed on planting them on City property to help balance the tree inventory. They now comprise approximately 10% of the city's trees.
