Ash is a hardwood species common to the mideastern U.S. Long venerated, ash was the very symbol of life itself in ancient European religions.
Ash wood is pearly white, with a brownish heart. This hard and mid-heavyweight wood features a straight and rather open grain with porous areas and occasional waves.
Ash is appreciated for its incredible strength and beauty. Its pale color and fine, rounded lines give caskets a warm elegance very similar to white oak.
Victoriaville ash caskets are as sure a value as the old Victoriaville hockey sticks.
