Thermally modified ash adds a domestically sourced species to our offering. Highly durable, modified ash is a perfect material
for outdoor furnishings, as it has a long lifespan, is low maintenance, and ages slowly and beautifully. Modified ash retains its uniform grain
character and takes on a deep brown color that grays over time.
The eco-friendly, low-impact modification process uses heat, not chemicals, to alter the chemistry of the wood, making it resistent to environmental
elements, including insects, moisture, and the warping, cupping, expansion, and contraction moisture causes.
Thermal modification also reclaims ash species that have been affected by the Emerald Ash Borer, putting the trees to productive use in an outdoor
environment instead of burning or landfilling them. Approximately 40 percent of the ash we thermally modify has been affected.
