General Info

Name story

White ash
As one of the most common trees in North America, it's also easy to be mixed up with other trees such as green ash (Fraxinus pennsylvanica). Actually, the best way to identify it is to examine its branches and leaves. The back of its leaves features a white covering along its veins, and the surface layer of the branches can be peeled off easily. Although the tree bark is gray colored, the timber turns white after further processing. With these reasons considered, it has been called white ash.

Symbolism

Protection, Prosperity, Sea Rituals, a tie between our world and the spirit world

Usages

Garden Use
White ash is one of the most commonly grown trees, with over 8 billion of them just in the US. Though it is not usually cultivated as an ornamental, it is sometimes planted for its reliably beautiful fall leaves with a lovely gradient of fiery colors. White ash can provide much-needed shade, support a border garden, or simply act as a standalone specimen in the lawn. It works well with forget-me-nots, hostas, and ferns.
