  • Ecological Value: Ash trees are threatened by the Emerald Ash Borer and if untreated, will die within 3-5 years after an infestation first occurs. The Ash trees in Freedom Park are treated every three years to avoid infestation. This specific Ash tree is likely treated as it’s still healthy. Ash wood is exclusively used for Louisville Slugger baseball bats.
