The common ash (Fraxinus excelsior) is spread across Europe and can climb up to 130 feet, making it one of the tallest deciduous trees. Worldwide there are about 65 species of ash, all native to the temperate belt of the Northern Hemisphere. The ash also plays a role in the mythologies of a wide range of culture. Some think it is the yggdrasil of Norse mythology, although this has come into doubt and it is more likely that it was a yew instead.
The wood is hard and very elastic and is used in the furniture industry, boat building, and to make sounding boards. It is also used industrially to make baseball bats and snooker cues.
