Overview

Ash (White Ash, American White Ash – Fraxinus americana) is one of the largest trees of all of the hardwood species. It can reach heights exceeding 100’ and sprout a leaf canopy that stretches up to 70’ wide. While its strength and hardness have made Ash a choice wood for centuries in bowls, canoe paddles and tool handles, its lively open grains and distinctive cathedral have also made it a stellar interior wood. Combined with the rich brown tones from thermal modification, these traits make Cambia by NFP TM Ash a stunning choice in architectural millwork projects.

Cambia Thermally Modified™ Ash received a Durability Class of 1 from the Entwicklungs-und Prüflabor Holztechnologie in Dreden, Germany when tested to European Union wood durability standards.
