Description

For many different reasons, more and more people in larger cities want to reuse urban trees scheduled for removal. People who are part of the "green movement" want to turn urban trees into something more valuable than firewood, mulch, or just trash for the local landfill. This publication describes the pros and cons of using urban trees for lumber, the types of lumber that are economical to produce from urban trees, and how you might find a sawyer who can turn your tree into useable lumber.
