Urban Ash Frames
Article for Urban Ash by Paul Hickman

Urban Ashes - Reclaiming a piece of Michigan's environmental legacy with fine furniture and frames. The Urban Ashes Collection is made in Michigan from Local Urban Wood salvaged from trees that grow on streets, in yards, in parks and other urban areas. In the past, this wood was often treated as scrap. However, the spread of the emerald ash borer and the related loss of tens of millions of ash trees throughout the Midwest, has brought a newfound interest in reclaiming urban wood for home furnishings and picture frames.                   urbanashes.com
