We will sell any wood the tree service cuts except for Ash, which is under quarantine due to the local Emerald Ash Borer infestation. See below for information on woods we sell throughout the year. Because we get our wood from tree service green waste, we cannot completely control which woods we have available at any given time.
Please use the contact form on the left to inquire about specific woods or to request an invoice for one of our assortment boxes. If you are looking for a wood we do not have, we will be happy to try to help you find it from another woodseller.
Ambrosia maple is one of our best-selling woods. It is not a species of maple, but a feature caused by the tree's infestation by the ambrosia beetle. We cut both red and silver maple.
Pyrus ca lleryana
Pyrus ca lleryana
Bradford Pear is another one of our best-selling woods. It has a plain grain, which makes it popular for wood-embellishing techniques like Basket Illusion, pyrography, piercing, carving, and dying.
Black Walnut is one of our harder to find woods. Black Walnut in Georgia is not affected by thousand cankers disease, so it is legal for us to ship ours out of state.
Flaming Box Elder
Flaming box elder, also known as ash maple, is our #1 most requested wood and another best-seller.
While it is unusual to find holly with large enough diameters from which to harvest turning blanks, it does happen, so let us know if you would like to be added to our holly waiting list. It goes fast! **
Black cherry is a turner's favorite! We do have ornamental cherry in our area, but do not process it unless asked as it is more difficult to work with.
Our tree service cuts red and white oak on a regular basis. We do not typically process it for turning, but are happy to do so upon request.
We cut large amounts of sweetgum, due to their unpopular seed pods that drop all over ones yard. Coloring ranges from the dark/white contrast shown above to beautifully mixed dark heartwood with browns, reds, and purples.
We do on occasion cut fruit wood such as plum, fruit-bearing pear, apple, and crabapple. These trees typically have small diameters. Processed upon request only.
Features & Figure
We are always on the lookout for burls, interesting figure such as birdseye, and crotch pieces which frequently showcase great grain features like feather fans.
In addition to the ornamental woods already listed, we also have access to other ornamentals such as Japanese maple, Crepe myrtle, Zelkova, and dogwood throughout the year.
