Since 2010, Pittsburgh’s Urban Tree has provided a new future for felled trees.
Urban lumber is notoriously difficult to use due to inconsistent growth, unknown health, and inclusion of foreign objects, so typically it’s chipped, burned, or thrown in a landfill. Since 2010, though, Pittsburgh’s Urban Tree has provided a new future for felled trees. They specialize in preserving the unique character of urban trees as they chainsaw mill trunks into usable slabs of lumber. Jason Boone, a trained architect, Nate Lucas, a fine artist, and their team use this singular material to create visually arresting furniture that will forever be rooted in the city of it’s origin.
