Made From a Rapidly Renewable Resource

Flat Rock produces furniture from round wood, small diameter sapling trees that grow in the understory of mature forests.  These naturally occurring saplings are stunted from the shade of larger trees and are wasted when mature timber is logged.  They are considered a nuisance and a fire hazard by foresters; so Flat Rock has developed synergistic relationships with forest products companies to remove these saplings before they are destroyed by logging operations.  You could say Flat Rock is a mini-logger.

Often asked if Flat Rock replants hickory trees after harvesting, the answer is…it isn’t necessary.  Once harvested, the saplings regenerate from the stump, a process known as coppicing.  They then grow into usable trees in 8 to 10 years, qualifying them as a rapidly renewable resource.
