Products

WholeTrees® Structural Products

WholeTrees provides turnkey structural systems, custom designed  configurations, and decorative components from round timber. We take trees from sustainably managed forests, prioritizing small diameter, low commercial value, and otherwise waste-stream trees, and use their natural form and strength for long-lasting biophilic components. This unmilled structural round timber (SRT) can be up to 50% stronger than milled lumber of the same size. WholeTrees products include columns, beams, and truss assemblies for cost-competitive, low embodied carbon alternatives to steel, concrete, or laminated wood products. All products are peeled, sanded,  pre-fabricated, finished, and delivered to site with pre-fit steel connection hardware, PE stamped shop drawings, and easy installation guidelines.

WholeTrees’ standardized production processes, installation packages, and warranties limit risk for general contractors and make decision-making easy for designers, engineers, and owners because to their ease of integration with other building materials, LEED and LBC building standard credits, and unmatched aesthetic appeal.
