We mentioned earlier in a previous article how we produce much of our furniture with White ash, but we’ve recently stretched further into North American Hardwoods with the use of Cherry.
Although White ash is the “premier species” for strong, durable wood, Cherry has similar attributes, but also carries a beautiful natural finish that White ash has a hard time competing with.
The beauty in finish is not all that makes this wood so remarkable.
Cherry is a prolific seeder.
Not only does it seed well in its current habitat, but it continues to spread in North America as well as into Mexico, even now, Brazil.
It’s a highly prized wood, but only represents a very small percentage of total lumber production.
In fact, its amazing growth in America points to several reasons.
Appalachian Hardwood Manufacturers, Inc. has cited one interesting reason.
They mention that birds help in assuring the fast spreading seeds of future Cherry trees.
The tree provides many birds with a steady diet, but those seeds that drop from the sky tend to find a new home to grow in.
Take a look at our Solid Cherry Collection, and see how beautiful this wood is.
We also thank the birds and other natural cycles that have allowed this tree to grow to our present use and continuing prevalence.
