Ash tree?

I have a very large ash in my yard (70 ft.) I suspect it's infected with EAB. Is it acceptable to harvest the lumber for use in furniture?

Lynn - absolutely! In fact, if you go to: and click on "Wood Utilization" on the far RIGHT side of the page, you will see that furniture is highly encouraged, and will give you links to sawyers who can mill it for you! Thanks for thinking forward! Brenda
