Black Willow Tree - Woodbine NJ

WillowTreeIn July 2017 we were excited to be offered the opportunity to harvest a very large willow tree that had been damaged by a storm in Cape May County New Jersey.  During a vicious wind storm the tree was knocked over, landing on the house and deck on the property.  Amazingly tall for a willow the top landed on the other side of the house.  This tree was judged to be about 150 years old. The tree was still growing and was wonderfully full of vibrant woods that could be utilized in woodworking instead of sent to the wood chippers. Birds and squirrels still made their homes in it, even a possum took up residence. Unfortunately that beautiful tree was damaging the house and had to come down.  That's when Woodlands Woodworks arrived.  Carefully removing the trunk parts from the roof, deck and side  yards, they cleaned up the area so it was now safe to walk around the house.  The final piece was to remove the part of the trunk still standing. With precision and accuracy the ladies of Woodlands Woodworks took down the trunk, landing it exactly where they wanted it to go. 

Here is a video of the final drop of the trunk:

Woodland Woodworks is the best. I have had them to my house twice already. The first time to remove a huge weeping willow that had fallen on my house. The second to start clearing out young trees that have taken over my yard. These ladies show up when they say they will, they work a full day, and leave you with a clean work site when done. Prices are reasonable. They are now my go to wood workers. I'll never go to anyone else. On a scale of 1 to 10 I give them a 15.
I had forgotten what a really comfortable well made pen is like.  When I grew up, we didn't have plastic 'icky' pens.  Your pen is absolutely amazing and I've found I really love writing again.
Our new bookcases are beautiful and fit in perfectly as they were made to order (color, size, etc) by Allison.
They are works of art, and the woods used are of such rarity that they are also treasures to have.  They are so beautiful (did I mention that already)
The wood this pen is made from Cocobola and it has beautiful sleek design, and just the right weight so my hand doesn't get cramped or tired when I have to write. Personally I love it - Thank you- Lori
