White ash prefers moist, deep soils for best growth but is adaptable to a wide range of soil pH. Full sun is best. Young plants are easily transplanted and established. White ash has been successfully used in the reclamation of strip mines in Ohio, Kentucky, and Pennsylvania. Seedlings provide a better start than direct seeding, and planting should be in mixtures with other hardwoods. White ash is more ornamental than green ash (Fraxinus pennsylvanica) but is less adaptable, grows at a slower rate, and is more susceptible to pests and diseases.
Bud grafting generally propagates white ash cultivars. The species also can be propagated by conventional methods of grafting and layering; open field and bench grafting of unpotted stock have been successful.
Fire kills the aboveground stem and crown of white ash, but it resprouts from the root crown after fire. White ash is moderately susceptible to decay and insect damage induced through fire damage.
