At Vermont Tree Goods we give trees new life.

Our work is driven by a desire to create a better ending for the oldest of Vermont’s heirloom trees. Often disregarded as too big or misshapen, the trees we recycle have completed their growth cycle. Our work allows them to live on for generations.

Commercial mills are fed immature forest-grown trees in an expedient manner that ignores the potential of the trees already growing in our communities. It is our mission to see that as much of that wood is transformed, so it doesn’t end up as carbon emissions, and its beauty is lost forever.

We are a wholesale supplier to those seeking multiple matching flitches – live edge slabs.

Our primary units of material are boules – full sets of flitches. It is in these that you will find companions that compliment in ways that result in the most stunning of creations. With the efficiencies that come from the handling of flitches in these units, we are able to price them accordingly, and to your benefit. 

We offer live-edge hardwood up to 7 feet wide and 20 feet long including:

  • Sugar Maple
  • Red Maple
  • Norway Maple
  • Silver Maple
  • Cherry
  • Ash
  • Hickory
  • Red Elm

We have an extensive working knowledge of live edge material.

By collaborating with architects and interior designers, we are able to find the right trees for their projects. The beauty of our material, combined with its true environmental sustainability, allows creativity to align with convictions.
