Natural Ash

The ash tree grows mostly in Central Europe, though there are American and Japanese varieties. The wood is bright and slightly yellow, with a distinctly expressed texture on the cross-section. The sapwood and mature wood look similar. Ash is harder than oak. It is very flexible and is often used for sports equipment, as it handles mechanical stress very well.
