Madrone


View Wood  Database Entry

Madrone/Pacific Madrone, this hardwood species is found along coastal areas in the pacific northwest. Madrone competes with evergreens growing wide twisting limbs to claim its space. It is also incredibly hardy against forest fires, surviving the initial blaze where its softwood neighbors burn leaving room for new madrone trees to spread. 

Madrone works similarly to hard maple with a few caveats taking its twisting nature into consideration. Largely a salvage wood it is sustainable and least concern within its native range.
