Willamette Valley Walnut

Call 503.239.9663 for current pricing and inventory

Walnut is a hardwood of intense beauty. Prized by woodworkers and furniture makers for its rich color palette of chocolate brown and coffee hues with hints of red, purple, gray and vanilla and a swirling grain pattern. Our local walnut gets its unique coloring from the minerals in the soil and adds drama and elegance to interior spaces.

PLACE
Walnut is not native to the Northwest but was introduced by early settlers in Oregon who brought English Walnut (Juglans regia) and Eastern Black Walnut (Juglans nigra)  nuts and root stock to plant at their new homesteads.  Primarily found in orchard settings, urban yards, and other areas where they have been planted intentionally throughout the Willamette, Rogue and Umpqua Valleys. 

PURPOSE
Our Willamette Valley Walnut is salvaged from orchards and urban street trees when the trees come to the end of their life.   It makes beautiful furniture, as well as flooring,  butcher block, wall paneling and other interior accents in a wide variety of applications.  

PEOPLE
We work with regional sawyers and mills that salvage the logs, cut and kiln dry the lumber.  We don't cut trees or buy logs, but we work with a network of people that do.
