Maine et Loire, France
What are these trees? Both grew from seeds from an unknown source. The first is very ash like but has reddish stems. It is growing straight and tall but has new shoots coming from the base, rather than suckering.
The second, which I decided some years ago was a Manna Ash, on account of its plumes of big fluffy white flowers, is probably NOT, but it suckers profusely. It has been killed back a bit in the winter. It grows more like a spreading bush or shrub than a tree.
