Ash is a hardwood species found in the east-central United States. Ash wood is pearly white with a brownish heart. This hard and aesthetically pleasing wood features an open grain with porous areas and occasional waves.
Its pale colour and fine rounded lines give Victoriaville & Co. caskets a warm elegance similar to that of white oak. Ash caskets manufactured at Victoriaville & Co. represent good value, just like the old hockey sticks produced in Victoriaville.
