Mountain Ash Characteristics
This is spreading tree with rich green leaves that turn almost florescent red and yellow in autumn and clusters of small white flowers mask the tree in late spring. Crimson berries in autumn with great foliage colours.
Mountain Ash or Rowan is a conical-shaped tree and ideal for a small, urban gardens even those in colder parts of the UK. It will tolerate coastal and exposed conditions, wet sites, chalk and clay although shallow chalk it may suffer.
Mountain Ash Height
A medium height tree, so expect a height of around 6-8m after 10 years. Mountain Ash is quite a columnar tree so expect its width to be around a third of its height.
Our mountain ash (sorbus aucuparia) is supplied at a height of 1.00-2.50m.
Should you require more than one tree then you may want to look at our WHOLESALE MOUNTAIN ASH section.

Do I Need To Stake My Bare Root Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.
All Our Trees Are Grown In The UK
As far as we know, none of our trees have sneaked off for holidays abroad and so are UK Grown.
Planting In The Corner Of A Garden
Air and light is reduced in this location which could promote fungus and bacterial issues. If the corner is of the house and a fence then you also have leeching issues to contend with from cement and wood preservatives. Also when it rains, that area would experience higher water levels so we advise against it.
Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots.
Have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other issues.
