What is Urban Wood Rescue?

The Urban Wood Rescue program salvages urban trees that need to be removed due to disease, pests, or safety issues and mills the wood into usable lumber. Instead of sending these trees to the landfill, Urban Wood Rescue gives a second life to urban trees.

Why Use Urban Wood?

When urban trees are removed and taken to the landfill, it allows them to decompose and release carbon back into the atmosphere where it contributes to climate change. By salvaging and reusing the wood from these trees, it gives the tree a second life and reduces our carbon footprint.
