White Ash

Fraxinus americana • American ash

Native

The white ash is our largest native ash species in Ontario as it can grow up to 30 meters tall. It is native to North America and is a common species in Ontario’s deciduous forests, throughout southern Ontario north to Lake Nipissing and Sault Ste. Marie. It can be found in rocky, deep, well drained soils. Populations have been impacted by Emerald Ash Borer, causing significant declines in numbers.  The tough, shock-resistant wood used has been previously used for hockey sticks, baseball bats and tennis rackets.
