Repurposing salvaged trees isn’t merely recycling. It is a touch of Art. It takes the brilliance of the mind and the wonders of Mother Nature to blend in the right chemistry to create functional furniture masterpieces. This defines Art of Tree.
With forest diminishing fast and the effects of global warming becoming increasing evident, we can no longer turn a blind eye on what is happening around us. As mankind, it is perhaps inevitable that the element of wood is to be used as an integral part of furnishing. However, it remains a conscious decision on our part on the choice of the source and type of wood we use. We at Art of Tree procure our wood mainly from salvaged trees in the cities around Peninsula Malaysia. Fallen trees, trees marked for removal for development, fallen dead trees in the forest, slabs/blocks that have cavities/rot have all been summed up as materials for the making of our functional art pieces.
We are just as concerned about the future of our offspring as you are. While in the pursuit of making business out of salvaged trees, we therefore pledged from year 2017 forth, to allocate a part of our sales to fund efforts to rehabilitate forests. We are in support of the activities initiated by GEC and Future Forest. To add on to that, we are heavily involved in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities such as sponsoring solid wood tables to Pitstop community centre, Handicappped Person Handicraft Centre as well as sponsoring food to the orphanage.
If you have purchased a piece of furniture from us, we thank you for your patronage and your collective contribution to rebuilding mother nature.
