I work at one of the Nat'l Park as a forest ranger and have the EAB here so the dead ones are being cut down. Am trying to get historic preservation to use the logs that are straight and solid. They usually use poplar and oak and cedar. So does anybody know any history of the use of Ash in the 1800s?
Thonet was a huge user of ash in his bentwood chairs.
If you are suggesting using the trees in log form, there are likely still live larvae in the sap wood. The only safe use of infested logs is that it is cut into lumber and kiln dried.
The ash trees had been treated for several years, but had declined. The Biologist related that there would be no EAB larva or pupa in the logs. So any other uses for ash during the 1800s?
