Some types of ash were used in making fabric dyes, but this sturdy wood is better known for making baseball bats. Ash is quickly being destroyed by the Emerald Ash Borer, an invasive insect originally native to Asia and now spreading in North America. Ash is in danger of becoming extinct, just like the American chestnut tree. Known as the “champagne of hardwoods” because of its beautiful golden tones, ash will brighten up any house. It also has varying light brown earth tones. Characteristics include: knots, light distressing, insect scarring, nail holes and other natural or man-made markings.
