Swamp Ash Overview

LATIN: FRAXINUS AMERICANA  ORIGIN: NORTH AMERICA

Swamp Ash is not a species unto itself but rather, differs from White Ash because of how it has grown. Swamp Ash trees typically root into swampy water, which gives it the name. Our Swamp Ash is weighted at 2.8 lbs per bd/ft or less, which is desirable for many guitar builders. Trees often attain heights of 70 to 80 feet, with trunk diameters of 24 to 36 inches. The grain is described as bold, straight, moderately open with an occasional wavy pattern. Plainsawn boards usually have strong contrast in grain. The narrow sapwood is nearly white in color. While the heartwood is pale brown, grayish brown, light brown, or pale yellow streaked with brown. The color may also be cream to very light brown, occasionally with a reddish tinge.
