Whole tree ethos

Whole Tree Ethos

From tree to table, here’s how we’re different

Trees are old beings and each one has a unique story, often spanning hundreds of years.

The trees we carefully select are either already down or about to come down. Our experienced salvage experts seek out old, large, unique and interesting trees — most often Big Leaf Maple which are legendary for their fine furniture qualities.

We take our time, gently removing each tree. We transport it carefully back to our workshop where our design team collaborates on best uses for the entire tree. Our first job is to extract large, thick slabs of wood, complete with the natural, bark-on edge we are famous for. But, we also make sure to utilize every inch of the tree for its highest end use.

Our trees are not only used to make beautiful, multigenerational art furniture but also musical instruments, carving,s and sculptural art while also meeting agriculture and energy needs.
