Using the Refuse

Juniper is an invasive, water-loving tree species that has been chopped at with wild abandon in the Southwest to keep the dangerous trees out of local ecosystems. Jeld-Wen has a way to use this hardy wood in its Juniper doors. According to the company, the wood is highly textured; shrinks and swells less than other species; and has a great rustic look.
