Our Name

In A Sand County Almanac, Aldo Leopold tells the story of the land from acorn to the present as he saws through each yearly growth ring of a large oak tree. I was taken by the living history that trees provide and the reverence we should have when stewarding our forests and in that spirit chose Quercus- the genus name for Oak.

Who We Are

We work with forests to sustainably harvest materials and ensure an increasingly beautiful and productive forest for the future. We provide a “Natural History” which includes the history of the landscape where your product comes from and silvicultural reasons for harvesting.

Where We Work

Our products range from spoons and spatulas to rustic and fine furniture all of which are crafted in our studio in Alfred Maine. The wood reflects the land in which it was grown and is truly a piece of Maine.
