When trees become a public hazard and have to be removed do you work to find the highest end value for that wood?
Communities across the country are finding ways for dead and dying trees to live on as new sources for green building materials, sustainable energy, and more.
Do you want your community leaders to transform the hazardous trees in your community into products that can live on? Join us to learn how to find more value in the wood from your city’s removed trees.
More information about the Wood Utilization Conference can be found at http://www.gettrees.org or by reviewing the attached flyer. We hope to see you there!
For more details, please contact Margaret Studer, District Forester for the Genesee Conservation District, at (810)-230-8766 Ext. 110 or Margaret.Studer@mi.nacdnet.net.
