American ash trees grow commonly throughout the eastern United States in mixed hardwood forests, from the north in New York State to the southern States along the Gulf of Mexico, and everywhere in between.
American White Ash heartwood is a grey-brown, sometimes tinged with red. Demand is usually for the lighter coloured white sapwood which can support both a classic and modern look. Generally straight grained with a coarse but even texture. Ash is a non-durable timber whose main uses are Interior joinery & furniture, Cabinetmaking, or tool handles. Due to shock resistance it is great for sports equipment like baseball bats.
