It is important for us at Rustic Wood Accents that we give back. For every mantel/shelf we sell, we donate to the One Tree Planted to plant a tree. One Tree Planted is a non-profit partner with reforestation organizations all over the world. Most projects they fund help with reforestation after fires or floods. Living near and having customers and friends affected by the Thomas Fire(California's largest fire in history occurring in 2018), we decided one way to give back is through this organization. As outdoor enthusiast ourselves, we love to find ways to connect our passion with our woodcraft. Additionally, by using reclaimed and salvaged wood we are insuring that additional trees are not being cut down. We source our wood from all over the country. Our barn wood comes from the Mid-West and Eastern states and our industrial and salvaged wood comes from Southern California. We work closely with local ranches to acquire slabs from fallen trees in the Conejo Valley. Having lived in Thousand Oaks- an official "tree city" for over 25 years we really appreciate the majestic oak trees that the city was named after. We look forward to giving back more and more as we grow each year.
