I planted this tree in 2006. It reseeded in the spring of 2008. For the size of the plant there were quite a few "babies". This tree is also known as Oakleaf Mountain Ash and Finnish Whitebeam. The tag said it is resistant to fireblight. Currently it is July 2008 and my tree apprears to be dying. Every leaf is curling up and turning brown. It has rained alot so far this spring and summer, I don't know if this is the cause. The babies I have allowed to grow under the tree appear to be fine. I am researching what the cause may be.
