White Ash (Fraxinus excelsor) grows in Central Europe, Northern parts of Africa, and West Asia.
Description and Physical Properties:
White ash is a strong and very hard-wearing wood (it measures 1320 on the Janka scale). Ash is similar in appearance to white oak, but is frequently more yellow. Heartwood color varies from light tan to dark brown, while sapwood is creamy white. Ash is distinguished by straight, coarse and moderately open grain that has some occasional wavy figuring. White ash is a hard, elastic wood with excellent shock resistance properties.
Because of its resilience and rapid growth, ash has historically been one of the most versatile woods with far-ranging uses. Until World War II, ash trees were widely used for building and woodworking. In Scandinavian mythology, ash appears as the holy World Tree, Yggdrasil. It is said that its roots are anchored in the abyss of the underworld and watered by the streams of wisdom and faith. The trunk of the sacred ash is said to be supported by the earth while its crown touches the arc of heaven.
