Our partners at Treincarnation create sustainably-harvested, rough-planed specialty live edge lumber — and it’s 15% off February 16–19 here at Community Forklift! This local company works to bring a second beautiful life to trees felled by storms or removed to make way for development. Instead of chipping them into mulch, Treincarnation mills these hardwoods into ‘live edge’ lumber, which is stacked and air-dried for years to bring out the best qualities in the wood.

  • local Washingon, DC, and Maryland tree species including walnut, cherry, maple, and more
  • planed and air dried
  • varying lengths up to 16 feet and widths up to 28 inches
  • 1-2 inches thick
  • great for tables, benches, shelving, and more
