This beetle is native to Asia. It was first discovered in North America in June 2002 and has been spreading rapidly, since the extinction of the ash tree is almost inevitable, and rather than seeing these beautiful trees go to waste, we've decided to make them into hardwood flooring because the trees that are being Harvested are not as matured as they normally would be. The boards are shorter than our regular hardwood flooring.
The ash boards come up to 84 inches with an average length of 30 to 32 inches, which is still longer than the industry average of 27 to 29. Inches ash looks very similar to oak and is actually slightly harder. Ash is very near and dear to our hearts. Over the years we have proudly shipped Ontario grown ash worldwide, including some materials for the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, Spain and other various projects throughout Asia.
