Viable Lumber is a tree recovery and recycling cooperative on a mission to salvage unusual, exotic, and beautiful hardwoods


Live-edge slabs

We specialize in large live-edge slabs, perfect for bar tops, kitchen counters, conference tables, dining tables, coffee tables, desks, and vanities

Second Life for trees

Our goal is to keep beautiful hardwood trees out of the waste stream (where they are typically mulched or burned as trash), and instead salvage the wood for use in arts, crafts, furniture, and custom woodwork. 


Turning stock

Our woods have incredible figure, color, and character, making Viable Lumber a favorite among wood turners. We see unique quilting, spalting, lightning strikes and more in these trees, leading to one-of-a-kind bowls, vessels, and keepsakes.
