The Oregon Myrtle-wood tree grows
uncultivated, only in a small area along the Pacific Coast.
stands of this unique tree are to be found. Nearly all of the remaining Myrtle-wood is scattered in small
groves throughout the lower valleys along the rivers of Southwestern Oregon and the southern Pacific Coast. Centuries
are required to grow a Myrtle-wood tree large enough to yield board-lumber.
A time may come when the supply of highly figured Myrtle-wood will be depleted and the manufacturing
of the articles from this wood may cease. The highly-prized pieces of today will be handed down through generations,
as heirlooms which will be preserved for us by our descendent's.
