This set of 3 pieces came from a Manitoba Maple tree that is very personal to FLO owner, Steve Pomerleau. It was located on vacant land next to his property.
While building a home on a lot next to this tree, Steve maintained and trimmed the tree, which had a very impressive 80+ foot wide canopy. Steve says "When I moved here, this tree's branches were touching the ground and it was in need of some grooming to expose its impressive structure. It is trees like this that inspired me to start this business altogether." Unfortunately, the property where this amazing tree resided for over 80 years was sold and development was coming.
Steve approached the developer to see if he could save the tree or salvage parts of it and luckily they agreed. These photos show many seasons of this amazing tree... all the way down to its final hour.
The crotch sections remaining could make a beautiful base for a dining room table, coffee, side or hallway table.
