Here’s a siding material you don’t see everyday, tree bark.

BarkClad, based in the southern Appalachian Mountains of western North Carolina, is a bark siding and building-supply company. They head into the woods every summer for a few weeks to harvest the bark of the Southern Tulip Poplar, a hearty and abundant tree whose characteristic to grow straight and tall makes it an ideal source for natural siding.

Each piece of bark is carefully hand-peeled from trees that have been sustainably harvested for the furniture and plywood industries, saving what otherwise would go to waste to create a beautiful natural siding product.
