Rod is correct when he says the Mountain Ash is hard wood. The older part of our house frame was made in 1979 of hardwood. It is so hard you cannot I repeat cannot drive a nail into it as it stands today. If I want to put in a screw to hold something to the wall I have to drill a hole almost the same size as the screw or it will not even look at it lubricated our not.It's that hard. It was used for a very long time in construction because of it's strength.
