Topic tags/keywords: ash question

I volunteered or was volunteered to assist in the reconstruction of an old British car in the woody style. I is my understanding that the bulk of the roof and side panels were made of White Ash.
Would anybody know if there are any small mills in the PA or NY area that could supply rough or S2S White Ash for this project?
Here in South Jersey all the sell is mosly Red Oak and Pine.

With the emerald ash borer problem and ash trees dying off I would say local sawmills would have a glut of it right now. I did a quick search on the following link I have put together and found dozens (and dozens more) of sawmills in your area, too many to list. Maybe this will help. Nationwide sawmill finder

Daren: Thank you for pointing me in the right direction. Those stupid search engines kept sending me to E-Bay or a boutique lumber site.
