If the hairs are small (visible only through a good 🔎︎ hand-lens), this is also called the green ash, which was previously considered variety/subspecies Fraxinus pennsylvanica lanceolata or subintegerrima.

Native to 🇨🇦 Canada and 🇺🇸 USA central and East.

In much of its range, now only very-young trees can be found due to infestation by parasitic insect emerald ash borer (EAB) Agrilus planipennis .
