This small, soft, seemingly insignificant tree has a rich history in our nation. The Mohave ate the seed pods and used the inner bark as a medicine while the Hopi used the roots to carve kachina dolls. Even into the age of Pioneers, Cottonwood groves became places settlers would camp and build cities, because Cottonwood trees always signaled the presence of fresh water. Though extremely soft, this creamy white wood is used for:
- Crates and Boxes
- Carving and Craftwood
Our Cottonwood has been locally sourced and dried down to 5% before being stored in our dry-shed under humidity control to ensure the highest quality material for your project. All our material is planed down to the sizes shown below.
