Bad Goat designs and builds beautiful Live Edge Furniture and quality Timber Frame and Log shelters using wood sourced from local forest restoration and urban tree removal projects. We create lasting goods out of trees from your backyard.
We can take down a hazard tree from your backyard and return it to you as a table, trim, siding, whatever you like.
Every log in our mill comes from the woods of Western Montana, often from within 15 miles. We procure logs from our sister company, Watershed Consulting, specialists in the ecologic restoration of forests and streams and urban arborist services. Our logs only come from small-scale forestry operations that adhere to stringent ecological criteria, which is why we say we only sell good wood.
