Native to: Australia Crown: Rounded Height: 30 feet Width: 20 feet Growth Rate: Moderate
Characteristics: Foliage is bright gold to green in spring, turning gold again around July. Bark is golden.
Negative Features: Low branching requires regular pruning to develop tree form and maintain an 8'-10' high canopy suitable for street tree use.
Uses: Good for underneath wires, cul-de-sacs, and tight situations where there is little room on arterial, collector, and residential streets. Good for entry features and highlights. This is a good choice when a shorter tree is necessary in order not to obscure a view.
Comments: Golden Desert Ash is an excellent small tree with wonderful yellow trunk, branches, and fall color.
