Description: Black ash (Fraxinus nigra) is an important resource for Tribes in the Northeast and Great Lakes regions of the North American continent. Ash in North America is being threatened with widespread destruction as a result of the introduction of emerald ash borer beetle (Agrilus planipennis) in 2002. Measures are being taken to slow the spread of emerald ash borer beetle. Unless proactive measures are taken to secure black ash supplies, however, Native American basket makers stand to lose their only source of materials. One potential action is the establishment of shelter populations of black ash in geographically isolated areas of the country.
Keywords: basketry, medicinal plants, Fraxinus nigra
