Eigenschappen en toepassingen

It is flexible and strong. American Ash has virtually the same properties as European Ash. Ashes with broad growth rings is much stronger than ashes with narrow growth rings. Freshly sawn wood can have a pinkish colour. If exposed to light, ash tends to become yellower in colour. It can withstand shocks very well. For that reason it is often used in the furniture and staircase industries. After processing, the wood remains smooth. The wood can be easily cut and is very well suited for varnishing or painting.
