Stadshout Amsterdam

Lumberyard of Stadshout Amsterdam

Finally visited Stadshout (Amsterdam) today! An absolutely heroic initiative to rescue felled Amsterdam trees from being pulverized into insignificance and instead offering them a second life in our city and our homes!

We might have found our ideal source for local sustainable timber… Stay tuned for Espenaer furniture made from Amsterdam wood!
