WholeTrees® Structural Products

WholeTrees Structural Products are pre-engineered wood components made from unmilled round timbers, an abundant by-product of sustainable forest management. WholeTrees utilizes 4″-24″ diameter trees that are 50% stronger than their milled lumber counterparts. WholeTrees engineered products include cost-competitive columns, beams, and truss assemblies as sustainable and aesthetic alternatives to steel, concrete or milled lumber. Product packages come with designed steel connections, PE stamped shop drawings, and easy installation guidelines.

WholeTrees’ standardized production processes, installation packages, and warranties limit risk for general contractors without impact from the fluctuating embodied energy and energy prices that impact the competition. The round timber structural products are also well-received by designers, contractors, and end-users alike due to their ease of integration with other building materials, LEED and LBC building standard credits, and unmatched aesthetic appeal. By drawing upon a decade of expertise to create strength and beauty from what would otherwise be considered an excess waste product by the conventional lumber industry, the advantages of WholeTrees products stand out over the competition.
