But we also cut a lot of trees for urban landscaping. Not wanting to contribute to deforestation or natural habitat loss, Arthur Zaaro had to innovate to use the exotic hardwoods disposed here during landscaping work and re-purpose them into quality wood pieces. As a result, the trees cut are turned into solid wood cutting boards, dining tables and other beautiful household decor.
