Red Ash is said to be more numerous than any of its brethren in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, and Virginia. Doctor Gray affirms that it is very rare west of the Alleghanies, but it is found in various portions of Iowa and Illinois. Its uses are the same as the white and blue ashes, and it has all the properties for which they are prized. It is cultivated as are the others of the ash family. It is smaller than the white ash.
