The areas that the trees are removed from are replanted with new trees making this a very eco-friendly and sustainable guitar wood.  The cool wet air of the Oregon Coast makes the perfect environment for slow consistent growth of acoustic instrument quality wood.  We air dry our Port Orford Cedar for at least three years.  We sand our bodies to thickness and never plane them.
