ARBOR BARBA the wood sculpting arborist, Why I Love & Respect My Work

Welcome to my little Arbor Barba Etsy shop. My aim is to make personal items that have a story to tell, have meaning, feel good, and are meant only for you and no one else. Beautiful hand-crafted items from sculptures to jewelry & various other decors. Unique and handmade by me with love & simply a natural passion for the work I do.

Spending time around trees and looking at trees reduces stress, lowers blood pressure, and improves mood. Numerous studies show that both exercising in forests and simply sitting looking at Trees reduce blood pressure as well as the stress-related hormones cortisol and adrenaline.
Trees give off oxygen that we need to breathe. Trees reduce the amount of stormwater runoff, which reduces erosion and pollution in our waterways and may reduce the effects of flooding. Many species of wildlife depend on trees for their habitat. Trees provide food, protection, and homes for many birds and mammals.

With all that being said I've been an arborist all my adult life and as much good I've done for many trees I've also had to fell many trees for various reasons, outgrowing its environment, root issues damaging foundations on homes, building requirements, etc,
if I'm completely honest its always our fault, felling sometimes quality Trees to make space for us,
but I understand the health and safety of living close to Trees, so now running my own company, I do Tree work my way, I simply won't fell a Tree unless absolutely necessary, I always discuss alternative options, failing that re-planting is suggested and normally my clients are happy to do so, one way or another I weigh things in the plant kingdoms favor.

All of my wood waste is responsibly recycled the wood that isn't recycled, will be kept by me, selecting all species of the most mature and rarest looking grains, keeping all the most unique pieces
making beautiful objects from my source of wood is one small way I can pay back, and it makes me proud to do it.
