Along with Oak, Ash is one of the least expensive types of utility hardwoods on offer in domestic markets.
It is mentioned in the IUCN’s Red List and falls under the ‘critically endangered’ category, as data suggests that there could be an 80% reduction in its population in its next three generations due to the introduction of new taxa. It is not mentioned in the CITES Appendices.
Ash is used for flooring, boxes, crates, and turned objects such as tool handles and baseball bats. It is also used in millwork.
