Ash

Ash is a coarse grained hardwood famous for its durability and strength. Formerly used as a substitute for Red Oak and White Oak, Ash today is sought-after for its own unique beauty and versatility. Pennsylvania Ash features a tan to light-brown heartwood, in contrast with the dark heartwood typical of most other growing regions. Ash is also an ideal hardwood for our chemical-free Thermal Modification, a high-temperature process to increase stability and weather resistance in outdoor applications.
