Where to find arbutus wood in Vancouver?

Hi there,

My dad loves wood turning and I would like to bring him some special wood from BC, do you know where I could find some Arbutus wood in Vancouver?

Hi Fanny,

You could try West Van area up towards Lighthouse park and beyond. Make sure though that you are not on private lands or protected areas.

But even if you find something, the chances of it splitting and cracking are very great. You could seal the ends with old paint or wax --- that may help.

Good luck!
