    You’re welcome! And thank you for feedback! You can Google for Ash species, and cultivars that grow in your state. Link below has great information on one of the species for the Southwest. http://www.public.asu.edu/~camartin/plants/Plant%20html%20files/fraxinusvelutina.html

    I completely agree that it’s a type of Ash. I looked it up and the bark and leaves definitely look the same. The only problem is that we were forced to chop it down because it becoming invasive. I’ll try and get a better picture of the bark/ any leaves we may have lying around. Unfortunately, any leaves we have would be brown and dried, so it may be difficult. As it is, thank you very much!

    Knowing where you are located, and close-up of the leaves, bark, etc… would help to narrow down the tree’s ID. For now, maybe a type of Ash (Fraxinus)? https://www.google.com/search?q=fraxinus&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjrtYLUn9jJAhVK7iYKHfe4CwAQiR4IfA&biw=1920&bih=909
