ATTU Island 1943
In 1943, American and Japanese forces fought for 20 days in Attu, Alaska. This U.S. Forest video conmemorates the sacrifices and shows the ceremony on the site overlooking the battle site that includes two Forever Redwood VA Benches built for the site.
Obama, China's Xi agree to work together
In late May, we received a phone call from the Office of Protocol at the U.S. State Department. To make a long story short, for symbolic reasons (Redwood only grows natively in the U.S. and in China), we were chosen to build a custom bench for President Obama to present as a gift to President Jinping of China. Many details went into it. from incorporating the number 8 into the design (because the Chinese believe it is an auspicious number) to exact engraving in both English and Chinese. It was a sprint job that had to be designed, edited, approved and installed in days. We got it done and it made the press Saturday June 8, 2013 when both Presidents stood before the bench and then sat in it for a symbolic photo. We are honored to have participated in this process and thank the State Department for their trust in us to get this done.
