Our Acadia live edge bark ornaments are handcrafted using beetle kill pine. We search the forests for the perfect size of standing dead pine trees and then saw them into lumber for ornament production. The perfect tree is just a few inches in diameter but can easily be 100 years old due to the extremely slow growth! Each ornament is hand rubbed with a coat of all natural beeswax and orange oil finish to bring out the beauty of the wood. The classic design is then burned into the surface.
