FAQS

Are the Elms Collection pieces limited edition?

While these are not limited-edition pieces, there is a finite amount of wood that will be available from the Penn State elm trees. So in some sense, there is a limited number and a limited time that items within The Penn State Elms Collection will be offered.

How do I know my piece is made from authentic Penn State Elms?

Each Collection item comes with a “Certificate of Authenticity,” verifying that your heirloom-quality piece was made with wood from Penn State elms.

Can I buy the raw elm wood?

No. The wood is not available for sale. Items included in The Penn State Elms Collection are the exclusive opportunity for alumni and friends to have a beautiful piece of Penn State history in their homes.

Is there any special care for the elm wood pieces?

No, just care for them as you would any other piece of fine wood furniture.

Is there a place I can see the collection in person?

A selection of the furniture and gift items are on display at The Hintz Family Alumni Center located on the University Park campus of Penn State. Anyone is welcome to stop by the center during normal business hours to view the collection.
