use reclaimed lumber and trees that have been harvested from the
California San Bernardino National Forest due to Bark Beetle damage,
land management and forest thinning tree removal. Thunderbird Rustic
Furniture uses the finest reclaimed Manzanita, Pine and Oak woods.
Knots, bark and individual characteristics remain untouched to give you
a unique, one of a kind look.
It is a curious
fact that the Manzanita tree only grows at a specific altitude, between
4000 and 6000 feet only. The bark of this tree is usually red, thin,
and translucent and often feels cool to the touch. Manzanita leaves are
simple, leathery, and evergreen. Manzanita produce small white to pink
flowers that bloom in bunches and mature into small fruits that are red
when ripe. It is from these "little apple" like fruits that the Spanish
name Manzanita originates. When the bark is sanded off, vivid
striations become visible in the grain, creating a stunning visual
effect. While it is illegal to cut down live Manzanita, there is no
shortage of deadwood available.
