A trees heartwood is the oldest part, at the centre of the trunk.
This is where the stories live.
Imagine a tree that is 500 years old, about middle age for an oak,
its heart wood was growing during the reign of Henry VIII
and Shakespeare had not even picked up a quill yet.
Fascinated by the stories that live in our trees and with a desire for those stories to live on,
Hertswood creates wooden craft from a workshop in Tring, Herts, using local, ethically sourced wood.
The beauty of these products lies not only in the aesthetic, but from the history of the tree it came from,
let me share those stories with you...
