Inspired by their shared love of skiing in Vermont, Treeline Terrains founders Jacob, Nathaniel, and Alex searched for a creative way to capture their outdoor winter experiences. Utilizing satellite mapping technology, they brought their idea to the woodshop to create a perfectly accurate 3D model of the mountain. The carving detailed each slope, trail, and descent where the friends had shared many winter days.
Today, Treeline Terrains captures the topography of the places you love in wood-carved art. Each work celebrates place-based experiences, such as a father and son hiking trip in Montana, a beloved family campsite in Maine, or a motorcycle trip in Baja, California. Every carving uniquely captures the place where memories were made.
Owner-operated, we craft each carving in our Bristol, Vermont workshop. All of our wood is purchased locally from A. Johnson Company, a family-owned sawmill committed to sustainable timberland management.
