    One of my favourite trees is Fraxinus americana ‘autumn purple’ but I don’t have the space for a mature size tree. I know ash trees are good candidates for coppicing for wood/firewood but I can’t find any information on if coppicing is a good way to keep a tree dwarf and how big I can expect it versus a mature non-coppiced tree.
    (I’m also aware of ash die off/emerald borer issues but I’m not too concerned based on my location and am willing to plant one and hope for the best.)
    Any info or resources would be great!

    Since the leaves are the main point of this growing it as a sprouting stump should work fine.
