Bark and the leaf

Figure 3 Shows the leaf of an White Ash which clearly shows how white the underside of a leaflet is.

The bark looks very similar to the Red Ash when it gets mature and doesn’t get that flaky look.

The leaf is a compound leaf. It is also pinnate. The leaflets are opposite of each other and have 5-11 leaflets usually.
