Ash Tree

Ash Tree (Fraxinus Americana)- largest of the native ashes. White ash is the wood used for Louisville Slugger baseball bats


Ash is known as the tree of strength of purpose, and wisdom. Ash sometimes represents the power which resides in water. To ward off evil, hang a staff carved of ash over your doorpost. Healing wands and brooms can be made from the wood, and poppets can be carved from the roots. Place ash leaves beneath your pillow to induce psychic dreams. Ash leaves can also be carried for general good fortune.

Ash Tree - Druids wands were made of ash twigs. It also has healing properties. Weak-limbed children were passed through split ash trees which were then bound up. If the tree grew straight, the child would as well.
