Nurtured by the Elements

Irish weather plays a crucial role in the seed’s development. Rain showers provide essential hydration while sunlight aids in its growth. The tree’s rings, added annually, are like chapters in a history book, each recording the climate and conditions of its time.

Gerry's Selection Process

After decades, when the tree has matured and is ripe for crafting, Gerry steps in. His years of experience guide him in choosing trees that aren’t just old, but also have character and a unique story to tell. He respects the tree’s life and ensures its legacy continues.
