Urban Hardwoods believes in the value of a greater cause, especially when it comes to saving our environment.

With Seattle undergoing rapid expansion, we understand that the need to maintain our natural landscapes is more relevant than ever. To help promote to the importance of preserving our natural urban spaces, we have partnered with The Trust for Public Land, a national organization that creates parks and protects land for people.

We share the vision that modern conservation is improving our urban lifestyle through salvaging and protecting our resources. Much like Urban Hardwoods transforms dying trees into beautiful furniture, since 1972, The Trust for Public Land has helped complete more than 5,200 parks and conservation projects nationwide that incorporate community need and character into beautiful spaces. Since opening an office in Seattle in 1975, The Trust for Public Land has become a conservation leader in the Puget Sound region, securing land and raising funds for local parks such as the Kukutali Nature Preserve and SAM’s Olympic Sculpture Park.
