I have grown this around the Valley for twenty plus years. It is a vigorous species indeed, and unfortunately likes to get started pretty early in the season - which often leads to frost/freeze damage to young foliage here.

My first plant was twenty to thirty feet tall when it succumbed to the 2007 Easter freeze - when in full leaf. Fortunately, Pterocarya fraxinifolia Fabulous Fecundity™ produced seed like no other. I had wee Wingnuts in every pot being watered nearby - and then some.

My current trees are equal in height, and doing their thing annually. Apparently the Valley agrees with them.
