Descriptions: The heartwood is a light to medium brown color. Sapwood can be very wide, and tends to be a beige or light brown; not always clearly or sharply demarcated from heartwood.

Defects: Heartwood is rated as perishable, or only slightly durable in regard to decay. Ash is also not resistant to insect attack.
