American White Ash spread in parts of the Eastern America. The wood is recognized to be classified according to its growth area and marketed as North South ash and ash. The heartwood is a light to brown color medium. Sapwood can be very wide, and tends to be a beige or light brown; not always clearly or sharply demarcated from heartwood.
