Phoenix Wood’s mission is healthy living through healthy forest by using dead and diseased wood to make natural home and office products, thus promoting forest regeneration.
Our products clear the forest of dead and decomposing trees that release carbon dioxide and serve as a volatile fuel for wildfires.

"We have a very dangerous, unpredictable situation. We have some of the highest temperatures, some of the driest landscape conditions, and some of the most powerful winds - all ingredients for a perfect firestorm."
- Ron Roberts, chairman of the San Diego County Board of Supervisors
"Fire season is now year-round,"

This is a tree after it has been infested with bark beetles, they burrow into the tree, “kill” it, preventing it from absorbing future carbon.
Once the beetles infect the wood they leave a fungus behind that creates a bluish hue. The fungus is then heated and removed from the wood leaving behind a unique color.
