Wood Types Used - Heartwood use uses both domestic and exotic woods. 

Currently, Heartwood replants approximately five trees for every tree they use. Our hope is that many of these trees will remain for the enjoyment of future generations and that some will be harvested and utilized upon their maturity.  Please read the Tree Replanting page for more information on Heartwood's tree replanting efforts.
