yes, there are in fact a number of different cultivars and hybrids of Arizona ash and FWIW, Sunset Western Garden BOOK regards "Modesto" as one of the most trouble prone of the bunch. OTOH growing a high/spreading canopy as a mature tree is fairly normal for this plant and in many cases is often considered desirable as a "shade" tree BUT may not be quite so much as a "street tree".
next time get an "(Mexican) evergreen ash" (fraxinus uhdei)---though just like "evergreen elms" (ulmus parvifolia "sempervirens")it is often NOT fully evergreen and may in fact drop some or all of it's leaves in fall/winter.
