Site Specific Projects
Urban Tree’s offers customized solutions for a range of commercial and public environments. Showcasing the city’s natural resources in a new light, Pittsburgh’s restaurants and bars, as well as leading companies and small businesses, have enriched their environments in collaboration with Urban Tree’s tailored craftsmanship and installations of reclaimed city wood.
Following a customized process of milling and kiln-drying, Urban Tree’s design process brings new life to a variety of urban hardwoods. Salvaging wood that might otherwise be reduced to mulch or landfill, this studio is continually exploring fresh applications, finishes, and details to best enhance the inherent beauty of reclaimed trees.
