What are Knees?
The term "knee" refers to a section of a tree where the trunk meets the root. The wood in this section of a tree is called "tension wood" because it grows against the stresses of nature's elements. Because of their great strength, knees are widely used for bracing and structural elements in ships, boats, homes, barns, timber frames and furniture.
We harvest our knees from Tamarack trees (Larix laricina), sometimes known as Eastern Larch. The roots of the Tamarack grow at a right angle to the trunk. We still dig them up by hand, just like they did 100 years ago.
