Portland Company Turns Storm-Downed Trees Into Future Furniture

According to a story on KGW8 News in Portland, ECO PDX, a company in Northwest Portland, Oregon who works with architectural firms and general contractors to design and build spaces as well as all kinds of furniture to repurpose the downed trees from recent storms in their area.

The process to turn these trees into their future projects will take months to even years because of the amount of time it takes to mill and dry the wood that is collected.

After it is brought to them, however, ECO PDX turns the wood into beautiful re-purposed and recycled creations from reception desks to table tops, benches to bathroom vanities.

Of course, according to the owner of ECO PDX, Eugene Park, “Depending on the species, it’s a lot more valuable that just firewood, and using furniture and solid wood is something you can use for many years.”

The City of Portland also uses the downed trees for environmental restoration as well as giving some of the wood to the Oregon Zoo for the animal enclosures.
