A quiet wood (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

ash

Here is my best explanation:

'wood' is the definition.

(ash is a kind of wood)

'a quiet' is the subsidiary indication.

'quiet' becomes 'sh'.

'a'+'sh'='ash'

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for ash that I've seen before include "Knotty - - (Ken Dodd)", "Burnt material; tree", "Remnant from fire", "Burnt residue", "The rowan tree is the mountain ...", "Common tree", "Burned residue", "Powdery residue from fire or cigarette", "Tree with winged seeds" and "Tree - effect of burning".)
