Spencer Smith park willow tree recipients Exotic Wood and 911 wood donate table to city

A collaborative effort among Exotic Woods and 911 Wood to create a beautiful willow tree wood table has been donated to the city for display.

Planks that were planed, milled and kiln dried by Arborwood Tree Service and Exotic Woods were handed out in September based on a lottery draw.

We thank both businesses for helping us keep the willow trees living in new ways.

Feel free to stop by at City Hall first floor lobby to see the work in person!

This is the third creation so far from the wood from the Spencer Smith Park willows, which had to be cut down due to internal decay. There is also a piece of art displayed on the wall in Room 247, a public meeting room at City Hall, as well as several pieces created by Richard Gingras, one of the recipients of a piece of wood from the public draw.
