"Trees are the earth's endless effort to speak to the listening heaven." Rabindranath Tagore
My name is Jeffrey Greene.
Trees have been on my mind and in my heart a long time.
Growing up reading National Geographic and spending time in wild places, I could not help but be an environmentalist, and to see the forest and the wood that comes from it as a an important component in our collective effort to save the planet. Having heated my home for decades with wood, I have seen how beautiful and unique each of the thousands of logs I split into firewood were. When I started sawing big logs on a sawmill I wanted to bring out that same sense of discovery and wonder of organic wood surfaces to the design community, and to envision large scale installations.
My lurching career path has been, roughly in order......tennis court builder, carpenter, ski bum, sail bum, architecture student, architecture, community development, and finally, artist and commercial spalter of fine regional timber.
