Event Description

Many common urban tree removal practices in the United States view felled urban trees as costly waste. However, trees removed from our cities and communities due to death, storm damage, or other circumstances are a resource worth saving. When processed, sold, and utilized, the U.S. could produce nearly 4 billion board feet annually to cushion local economies, reduce expenses for communities, and provide a sustainable, renewable resource for distinctive finishes in built spaces.
This presentation will provide an overview of the urban wood industry and include the considerations necessary by designers, specifiers, and contractors wishing to utilize urban wood.
