Who We Are & What We Do:
Live Edge Detroit is a premier local supplier of responsibly-sourced and -milled urban wood. We operate by accepting log donations from local tree care companies, like SavATree, Mike's Tree Surgeons, and other community sources that would otherwise turn their "waste" material in firewood or mulch. At our warehouse in Troy, we'll mill these logs into usable materials like slabs and rounds and dry them using a dehumidification kiln. We also now make select finished products from our own wood supply. It is our mission to salvage felled urban trees and give them a chance to live on in a new form for many more years to come.
What To Expect When Visiting Live Edge Detroit:
Do you have project in mind that involves Live Edge wood? Let us help you out! We offer a full array of options from single rough-sawn slabs and pre-cut shelves to finished tables and home goods. All of our wood is responsibly sourced from around Metro-Detroit. We stock over 20 different species in a variety of lengths, widths, and thicknesses. We even carry small cutoff pieces for hobbyists and local artists. When shopping at our warehouse, you’ll have the opportunity to choose from hundreds of slabs at warehouse-direct prices. Bring your inspiration photos and measurements, and one of our staff members will be happy to help you out!
Just want to come look around at the raw wood and get some ideas? That’s great, too! We are open to the public five days a week, with no appointment needed.

Your Common Questions Answered Here:
Do you purchase logs or remove trees?
Live Edge Detroit does not perform tree removal services or purchase logs or lumber. If you have a log you’d like to gift to Live Edge Detroit, please email us photos, and we'll reach out to discuss further action if it’s something we can accommodate.
How much does a slab of wood cost?
This is one of our most common questions and one of the most difficult to answer with a quick reply. At our warehouse, you’ll find a wide variety of wood from $10 (small cutoffs) to $100 - $1,000 (individual slabs). Being that we have so many options in stock, the best way to find something that works for you is to stop by and look through our inventory in person.
