Sustainable & Resilient

Sourced and manufactured within North America, Vision Wood offers a premiere selection of thermally modified wood products for all of your outdoor and indoor projects. Thermally treated wood thoroughly alters the cellular structure of the lumber, creating a high-quality, vibrant material built to perform in the harshest of climates.

Sustainability, durability, innovative technology – several of our core tenets in bringing to market a product that delivers exotic appeal with only the natural elements of heat, steam, and time. With performance and quality in mind, we aim to provide generational wood for all design concepts.


  • Manufactured to last 25++ years in the outdoors
  • Sustainably sourced from American forests
  • No added chemicals, 100% natural
  • Made in the U.S.A
  • Mold-, rot-, and insect-resistant
  • Enhanced dimensional stability
  • Excellent application properties regarding paint and finishes
  • Less heat retention
  • Maintenance is preference based – products can be treated, or left untreated to gracefully transition from chocolate brown to a silver-grey



Our Heat Treated Ash holds a Class 1 Durability rating, which is similar, and in some cases superior to tropical hardwoods, but without the damaging ecological costs.

Only using heat, steam, and time, we are able to structurally modify the wood, thus creating a thoroughly enhanced product without the use of dangerous or toxic chemicals.

From the American Ash tree to the finished product, we are 100% integrated: meaning we cut, process and treat the ash, then mill to size, and ship to our clients. Our products are and will remain 100% American-made.

Several benefits of the thermal modification process are the removal of sugars and carbohydrates creating a product that contains no sustenance for insects, mold, or mildew to foster– thus a resilient wood product suitable for all conditions.

Once thermalized, the wood develops a Equilibrium Moisture Content (EMC) that is more than half of untreated material giving you stable lumber with significantly reduced expansion/contraction rates.

Our HT Ash retains heat at a decreased rate due to reduced thermal conductivity – in direct sunlight, no hot feet!

Due to our proprietary thermalization process, our HT Ash has no grain raise. The wood remains smooth to the touch in all elements.  All other outdoor wood materials have grain raise creating a rough texture that traps dirt.

When first installed, your HT Ash will be a warm, chocolate brown. Under full exposure, one may expect the product to silver over the course of 6-12 months. If the original color is desired, a routine oiling every 6-12 months will be necessary.


Left exposed to the elements, unfinished Heat Treated Ash will transition from a warm brown to a striking silver-grey patina.

How would you like your project to age? Left unfinished to transition to a beautiful silver grey over the course of 18 months? Or perhaps a UV oil-based finish that keeps the caramel brown warmth of the HT Ash? As one can see, elegance and allure can be found even in the most natural of finishes: our thermally treated timber appeals to all designs and applications.
