What happens to trees at the end of their lives?
All of the logs you see here were headed to the landfill.
Our first goal at Urban Wood Rescue is to honor the lives of trees as valued members of our community by keeping them out of the landfill. We extend both the beauty and the carbon sequestration value of our trees by milling and drying these salvaged logs on site. Here at our lumber yard, you can purchase these live edge slabs and dimensional lumber for your home, business, or artistic projects.
Become Part of a Tree’s Story
When we use local urban lumber, we create a relationship with the wood we use that includes a connection to the trees that it came from. This relationship to the life of a tree infuses the spaces we live and work in with meaning and connection. It’s a win/win/win where we support our local economy, support the life cycle of our urban forest, and become part of the story of a tree’s life beyond its natural end.
