URBAN TREE SALVAGE solid wood Live Edge Slabs are derived by environmentally friendly methods. URBAN TREE SALVAGE recycles felled Toronto trees removed by reputable local arborists, City of Toronto forestry department and other Ontario municipalities. Milled and kiln dried all at our city based showroom, wood shop and log processing facility, working from one local location helps reduce our carbon footprint.
Our standard 2" (8/4) live edge slabs are available in a variety of sizes and species. URBAN TREE SALVAGE offers 4" (16/4) single slabs as well as book matched sets, meaning they were cut consecutively from the same log. Using book matched slabs allows you to create wider surfaces with a mirror image effect.
We focus our salvaging efforts on all domestically grown, local hardwoods. Commonly salvaged species include: Ash, Basswood, Beech, Elm, Maple, Oak, Poplar and Willow as well as other specialty species such as Black Cherry, Black Walnut, Catalpa and Locusts. Toronto trees are under a significant amount of stress due to their growing environment, thus producing unique grain patterns and desirable colors also referred to as 'figure' such as spalting, curl, birds eye and ambrosia.
Most Live Edge Slabs are available with a live edge on both sides. These solid wood Slabs are perfect for creating Live Edge Slab kitchen tables, Live Edge Slab dining tables, Natural Edge Slab coffee tables, Natural Edge Slab console tables, Live Edge Slab boardroom tables and desks, Reclaimed Slab benches, Live Edge Slab mantles, Live Edge Slab shelves and Natural Edge Slab accessories.
All kiln dried, our Natural Edge Slabs come rough sawn in random widths and lengths. Please visit our showroom or contact our office for more information on our current stock.
Also available, UNFINISHED TABLE TOPS in a variety of Salvaged Live Edge and Reclaimed woods. Kiln dried, planed and glued up, you sand and finish creating your very own one of a kind Salvaged Live Edge Slab or Reclaimed wood table.
