What is considered Salvaged?
“To save something from destruction or waste and put to further use”
Our salvaged wood derives from trees that have been felled due to storm damage, insects/ disease and development, collected then processed into new and usable material.
Urban Tree Salvage carries a selection of locally felled Toronto trees ranging in age from 50-200 years old. Due to their stressful growing environments, urban trees often have deeper colors, interesting grain patterns, knots, cracks and evidence of insect activity.
Spikes, nails, wires, fencing and pipes are all common elements found in urban trees making them undesirable for most sawmills and deeming them as waste.
