The ash tree forest

Index card


Fraxinus angustifolia
It is necessary to emphasize the abundance of large-leafed ash below the path. The strong slope, the slightly shady orientation and the proximity of the torrent, favor the proliferation of this ash tree forest.
Many ash tree forests, due to their situation and their rich nutrients soil, were replaced by grassland. Lately, with the abandonment of some of these meadows, they have been recovering ground. In some places still use the branches of the ash as a forage for cattle.
Today, its wood is used to make cricket bats, hockey sticks, pool tacos, gymnastics, sleighs and oars.
