Natural History Ballpoint Twist Pen

Regular price$165.00

“The chronology of these pens spans from the late 1800's or early 1900's to 2016. The Douglas-fir tree used to make this pen had sprouted in Western Montana in the early 1900's. In 2016 the tree was harvested as part of a forest restoration project. The pen can be customized with dates or initials to make the perfect commemorative gift. Year(s) of special significance inscribed on the pen will correspond to the year the wood formed in the tree that became the pen.


This pen functions as a twist pen. Available in gun metal black titanium, this pen is made of high quality components. It comes with an exceptionally good ink cartridge- the Schmidt Easy Flow 9000. The first and last year of the tree’s chronology are automatically included on the pen. As an option, additional year(s) or initials can be added to your pen by completing above field(s).


The pen comes with a beautiful wooden case for displaying both the pen and an information card describing the tree ring/natural history and forest restoration. Each pen will vary in origin date and grain pattern.

50 Annual Tree Rings- Est. 1973

Yes, the 1.5" tree used to craft this watch was a tiny seedling in 1973. Count the rings!

The Forest

Example of a sappling tree used for Tree Ring Watches. In the rugged mountains of Montana, where century old trees grow slowly, wood acquires extraordinary character. In our forest restoration work, we harvest thousands of small trees, only a few have the character to make the grade as a Tree Ring Co. piece.

Gift Box and Display

Each watch comes mounted on a small wood slab nested inside a cherry veneer box. When not being worn, the display stand allows the watch to serve as a small desk or shelf clock.

Don't take our word for it


The watch is fabulous. Looks even better in real life than in the images. The watch was for my husband’s 50th and combined his 3 passions: watches, wood and Wales.....

Big Hit

The pen was a big hit. The recipient was a wealthy businessman who could essentially buy anything he wants, but because it was a one-of-a-kind pen made just for him, it was perfect! Thank you for offering such a beautiful pen. I will be sure to pass on recommendations to anyone looking for a unique gift.
