Add Something Beautiful to Your Home…

What Do We Do?

Here at the Wood Station Co-Op, we have a passion for up-cycled wood.   And a passion for your wood project!  We can provide you with live edge slabs, urban wood or the service you need for your DYI project, small furniture piece build, custom slab options for a beloved tree from your property, kiln drying and flattening /sanding services.

What Is Up-Cycled Wood?

Up-cycled wood is wood that was taken from trees which needed to be removed for crowding, disease, damage, or land management purposes. This means that no trees were cut down for the sole reason of harvesting their wood. Up-cycled wood can also be already milled boards from a previous built structure which are reclaimed and reused for a new purpose.

Why Use Up-Cycled Wood?

Up-cycled wood is a great way to combat damaging practices such as deforestation and wood waste. Since all of our wood comes from trees that have been removed for a specific reason, we are not tempted to over harvest and destroy forests. In addition, up-cycled wood has a rich history, a story behind the wood find. A furniture piece that will carry that story for generations.

Where Does Our Up-Cycled Wood Come From?

All of our up-cycled wood is from Wisconsin. While most of it comes from Arington Tree Farm itself, some comes from local area residents and businesses looking to dispose of trees for future use and purpose.  

About US

Local schools attend an Arbor Day event at the farm

In 1998, Joe Arington bought 20-acres of land in Cambridge WI. Turning dreams into reality, Joe started Arington Tree Farm, a family owned and operated business which would eventually grow into a 600-acre venture focused on conservation and sustainability. The farm is diverse in landscape;  featuring ponds, forests, meadows, an abundance of wildlife, farm animals, and many tree species including: walnut, oak, hickory, cherry, spruce, ash and pine.

While keeping in mind the core beliefs of conservation and sustainability, Arington Tree Farm had trees on the property which needed to be removed in order to follow their land management plan. These trees were primarily damaged due to disease or environmental issues. It was felt these trees still had a purposed other than becoming firewood, chip or sent off to the landfill. The mutual love for the wood, beauty and history behind each log gave birth to the Wood Station Co-Op.  Over the years we’ve grown, exploring and adding new services. Our Mission at the Wood Station Co-Op is to offer quality custom slabs, dimensional wood, kiln drying services along with custom live edge & rustic furniture. We are not the largest wood business in SE Wisconsin, but we take pride in what we do and what we can offer each client.
