What Can You Do To Help?

  1. When you need a tree removed from your property select a tree service or arborist who works closely with a sawmill owner to ensure that your trees are put to their highest use. Please keep in mind that few urban trees have a value that exceeds the cost of removal and processing, so it is unlikely that you will be paid for your trees. But there are positive reasons other than economics to salvage your trees, including the environment, tribute to the tree at the hands of a craftsman, rich backstory of the future antiques that are made from them, etc.
  2. Replant the right tree in the right place.
  3. Select wood products for your future projects that are Urban, Salvaged, and Reclaimed. If you don’t know where to find these, ask us, we can help.
  4. Purchase finished wood products that are made from Urban, Salvaged, and Reclaimed woods. We all use wood products in our lives every day. The next time you have opportunity to buy some, check first to see if it is available in Urban, Salvaged, or Reclaimed. You can also look to replace your plastics and other products with this natural renewable environmentally- friendly resource.
