"To be without trees would, in the most literal way, to be without our roots.” 

Letting Go...

Often we have difficulty letting go of things from our past. This is true of trees as well. We have had so many people ask us for example, if we could take the lumber from an old oak that was at one time a vibrant part of their childhood home, now rotting or dead, and construct a dining room table, or beams for their house, or a custom mantle.

 

Because TimberKrete specializes in every facet of wood slab production, we are able to work with you in an effort to preserve these treasured pieces of your past. We have the ability to come in, take the tree down in a safe and effective manner then we will saw out the necessay slabs. Using our state-of-the-art high frequency vacuum kiln, we will dry the lumber to the desired humidity. 

 

We can work with you to create both a memory and a legacy...                     

The Oldest & Largest Sugar Maple In NY State! 

As seen on 13WHAM news...the 400 year old maple was taken down from where it had stood on the grounds of the Heritage Square Museum. Truly a monument, the tree's usable sections will be turned into a solid slab bench to be enjoyed by all who visit the museum.

 

 

TimberKrete Custom has gotten exclusive rights to the sugar maple and will be creating this bench and donating it to HSM. In addition we will be crafting a sister piece which will be auctioned off to benefit the museum.  

We were lucky enough to get in contact with William and Beatrice Carmel of Bloomfield, NY. This giant Eastern Cottonwood that had always looked over their home on route 5 & 20 was unfortunately beginning to falter. According to the New York State DEC Registry, the tree is listed as having the second largest diameter in the state, second only to an oak tree in Monroe county. 

The county deemed that the great cottonwood had to be taken down. We wanted to be a part of preserving the rich history of this tree. Once down, assuming there is sufficient usable wood, we will craft a massive center cut table approximately 10' wide by 20 ft long that will be auctioned off. Proceeds from the auction will go to the family and also toward Alzheimer's research.
