URBAN TREE SALVAGE is Canada's first and largest municipal log salvaging operation based in Toronto. Approaching our 11 year anniversary, we are the leaders in Reclaimed and Salvaged Live Edge Slab Tables and Reclaimed Barn Board.
When a tree comes on hard times be it insect infestation, storm damage or urban development, URBAN TREE SALVAGE rescues these logs from becoming mulch or other ends as equally unappreciative of a tree's beauty and value. Our focus rests on preserving natural forests, ultimately educating the public on the utilization of waste products.
All our material is locally sourced from permit felled Greater Toronto Area trees, milled, kiln dried and turned into one of a kind creations all at our city based showroom, wood shop and log processing facility. Working from one local location helps reduce our carbon footprint.
Our goal is to design and handcraft extraordinary one of-a-kind pieces destined to be the focal point of any room. Each piece celebrates natural beauty marks like knots, grains and other imperfections not found in mass-produced items. Working with environmentally conscious and design-curious customers, we include our clients in the entire process from selecting their material, finish and design.
Our stock consists of locally grown species such as Ash, Basswood, Black Cherry, Black Walnut, Elm, Locusts, Maple, Oak and Poplar. Working with urban forestry waste, URBAN TREE SALVAGE offers Toronto’s largest selection of Ash tables created from Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) felled trees.
URBAN TREE SALVAGE offers a selection of finish options such as Hand Rubbed Oils, Water Based Urethanes and Oil Based Stains. What we create in the end is environmentally friendly functional art pieces for the home or office, exclusively from salvaged and reclaimed wood.
We carry a selection of readymade Salvaged Natural Edge Slab and Reclaimed Wood Tables and Tops as well as offer many custom Salvaged and Reclaimed table options with a variety of base designs & finishes to choose from.

Our Reclaimed Lumber and Barnboard
Available at URBAN TREE SALVAGE, Reclaimed Barn Board, Reclaimed lumber and Reclaimed timbers.
Barns across Ontario are slowly falling down if they have not been repaired from years of non-use. Ontario barns that were built many years ago were all constructed with locally grown trees that were harvested from the build location and made into lumber. The hardiness zone of the barn as well as the date the barn was built usually dictated what material was used for construction. Reclaimed Barn Board siding used commonly for creating Barn Wood feature walls and cladding is typically made of pine, hemlock and spruce and is offered as Reclaimed Grey Barn Board, Reclaimed Brown Barn Board and Reclaimed Red Barn Board. URBAN TREE SALVAGE carries thousands of square feet of stock to select from for your next DIY project.
URBAN TREE SALVAGE also recycles demolition and construction waste such as excavated historical timbers that were discovered when building condominiums in downtown Toronto dating back to the early 1800's as well as Reclaimed building timbers and beams that were salvaged from old historic buildings across Ontario.
URBAN TREE SALVAGE reclaims these materials and sells them as unfinished solid wood lumber as well as creates beautiful readymade Reclaimed Wood dining tables, Reclaimed Wood coffee tables, Reclaimed Wood console tables, Reclaimed Wood benches and Reclaimed Wood beam side tables.
