Our wood is never treated with chemicals.
Each piece of manzanita wood that we offer is hand-collected from downed or
dead wood on our property - we do not cut living manzanita shrubs to obtain
these branches. These naturally-aged pieces have been pressure washed and
gently scrubbed - and are otherwise untreated. **Be sure to soak and boil if
you are planning to submerge these pieces in an aquarium! While we have spent
time cleaning them, these pieces have not been sterilized. Boiling will help
ensure the health of your critters and will accelerate saturation of the wood
for optimum placement!**
Let us know if you are looking for something in particular; we have a wide
range of shapes and sizes of manzanita wood! We are slowly adding more pieces
to our shop - take a look, check back often, and don't hesitate to ask!
Our Northern California ranch has an abundance of common manzanita that grows
in graceful, exotic shapes. Manzanita shrubs have a relatively short lifespan,
averaging several decades. The wood itself is incredibly dense and durable -
which means that when shrubs eventually die and dry out, the beautiful branches
remain in place for decades, ever so slowly deteriorating as they face the
cycle of the seasons. As part of our ongoing effort to responsibly maintain our
ranch and reduce available wildfire fuels we are gathering unique manzanita
branches - and making them available for you to enjoy in your own home.
