Ash wood - what price do you have to expect?

Ash wood is not only popular as a plywood, but also has a wide range of applications as solid wood. What price you generally have to pay for ash wood, and where there are price differences, you will learn in detail in this post.


For ash wood there is a special price criterion: namely the difference between ash "white" and ash "brown". Add to that the difference in the price of thermo-treated wood.

Price differences of the individual types of wood

  • Ash white
  • Ash brown
  • Ash treated thermally

This small difference almost leads to a doubling of the price of sawn timber. Ash brown usually costs between about 650 and 800 EUR per m³. That's about the price of beech wood. Ash white, on the other hand, is usually in the wood trade in the range of 1,000 - 1,200 EUR per m³. For thermo-treated wood you usually have to expect between 1,700 and 2,200 EUR per m³. So here are big differences.

Ash in the forestry

Ash is found in many of our forests. For this reason Eschen is often sold by the respective forest administrations. The prices are significantly lower than for comparable types of wood, for example in the range between 55 EUR / fm and 115 EUR / fm. So if you make your own firewood, and do not care about high wood quality, in some cases can make a good deal, unlike birch, beech or oak, prices remain relatively constant and rarely attract.

Price-heating value ratio

Since ash wood has the same high calorific value as beech wood, a shop can be worthwhile here. From a room meter of ash wood one can gain just as much heat as from a room meter of beech wood - only often at a much lower price.

Tips & Tricks

One cubic meter of beech or ash wood usually supplies about 2,100 kWh of heat. That's just as much heat as 210 liters of heating oil.
