Learn about the Ash wood that is turned into our dowels: Ash (White Ash Group) Important species of the white ash group are American white ash (Fraxinus americana), green ash (F. pennsylvanica), blue ash (F. quadrangulata), and Oregon ash (F. latifolia). The first three species grow in the eastern half of the United States. Oregon ash grows along the Pacific Coast.The heartwood of the white ash group is brown, and the sapwood is light-colored or nearly white. Second-growth trees are particularly sought after because of the inherent qualities of the wood from these trees: it is heavy, strong, hard, and stiff, and it has high resistance to shock.  American white ash is used principally for nonstriking tool handles, oars, baseball bats, and other sporting and athletic goods. Principal uses for the white ash group are decorative veneer, cabinets, furniture, flooring, millwork, and crates.
