Wood Coasters are approximately 4 1/2" around but will vary slightly due to the branch sizes they are cut from. Perfect for rustic weddings, housewarming gifts, holiday decor or everyday use, each one is charmingly unique. Natural variations in both color, striations and grain give them a one-of-a-kind quality. Many ash trees in the United States are dying due to the "Emerald Ash Borer" a highly destructive and incurable disease. As is too often the case, the borer was accidentally introduced into our environment by carelessness. In its native environments in Asia there are natural predators that keep the borer in check. Part of the beauty of the wood is due in part to the damage done to the tree by the borer. The Ash Tree used for these coasters was approximately 50 years old before it succumbed to the devastation caused by the ash borer. All wood used in our natural Coaster Sets are from trees in one of our several garden projects including the Dunbar Memorial Garden and the Deauville Riparian Buffer Project, meaning they are sustainable and environmental keeping less wood byproducts in the landfill by repurposing them into beautiful home products. Our desire is that they are also educational, helping others to understand the importance of preserving our native flora, fauna and most importantly our native forests and trees.
