What is a synonym for plumbing?

Blue ash (Fraxinus quadrangulata) is a medium-sized deciduous tree native to midwestern North America that is most often found growing along limestone outcrops. It tolerates dry soils better than other ashes and grows in full sun to partial shade. Its roots grow deeply into limestone substrates and it tends to be more resistant to drought than green or white ashes. It also prefers alkaline soils with a high pH.

Its foliage is similar to black ash, with opposite pinnately compound leaves with 7 to 11 leaflets, but it is easily distinguished by its 4-angled twigs that give it the appearance of a square cross-section, and by its more compact form. Its common name stems from the fact that its inner bark pulverizes to produce a blue dye used by early settlers.

Like all ashes, blue ash is susceptible to emerald ash borer (EAB) and other pests and diseases. However, when a blue ash is managed properly and not subjected to stress, it can live for 200 or more years. This longevity depends on the ability of the tree to resist infestation by EAB and other diseases and pests, and to weather wind damage. As blue ash trees age, they become more brittle, and breakage during storms is fairly common.
