We are always looking for donations of creative materials that can repurposed here at Treehouse World. Here are some of the items on our current wish list:
- Natural Fiber Rope (such as manila or hemp) – any diameters, any length pieces over 5′.
- Bells: cowbells, dinner bell chimes, etc…
- Utility poles of various lengths for construction and landscaping.
- Logs from locust, white oak, walnut, sassafras, and other trees that have rot resistant heartwood. We can build cool sculptures out of them.
- Antique tools, wooden block pulleys, etc… for decorations in our lobby.
- Orange cones: any size. They do not need to be DOT approved.
- Closed-Toed Shoes (still in good shape) in all sizes for kids who forget theirs but still want to climb.
Some of this stuff is more valuable that other stuff on the list and we might be willing to buy it from you. It depends how good it is, how badly we need it, and whether delivery is included. Please contact us if you have something we may be interested in. We are also open to trades, so if you bring us 10 utility poles, we’ll host your event or birthday party in exchange, for example… All of this fits our values – to find ways to reuse things that would otherwise end up in a landfill.
