Cyril Jacob

For two decades Cyril Jacob has been rescuing tonewood-quality trees from going to waste, either from rotting on the forest floor, or from being processed into garden mulch or firewood. It all began with a belief in stewardship and a few salvaged cedar trees: Cyril got his start providing cedar shakes and shingles from salvaged trees, and in the mid ‘90s, bought his own mill and branched out into other species like as bigleaf maple and walnut. Cyril makes it his personal mission to ensure that cut and downed trees find their highest purpose, and is proud supply these woods for use in fine instruments that will be treasured and handed down from generation to generation.
