We are a company that makes products using apple trees, which is rare in the world.
Everything from logging to sawing and processing is done in-house.
Hirosaki cultivates apple most of Japan. There are many apple trees that finished their duties because of various reasons every year. Most of them use for firewood, but other is just dumped. The reasons are 1. thick and long, 2. many knots, 3.
spend a lot of time to adjust it as useful wood. “CHITOSE”that is 1st brand of Kimumoku produces apple tree items that we cut apple tree, lumber, make dry. Even that, it is just half of them that we can use, but we keep to use apple tree because it is domestic resource and we want to introduce their special texture.
