September 28, 2011
Stories about Michigan's Urbanwood Project and other innovative urban wood programs were shared during the Society of Municipal Arborists International Urban Forestry Conference in Milwaukee, WI, on September 27, 2011. Jessica Simons, a longtime partner with the Urbanwood Project, encouraged the event's participants to learn more the wood resources generated by urban forestry activities, to build partnerships with local industries, and to be creative in thinking about how the wood from removed trees could benefit their local communities.

The Urbanwood Project is coordinated by Recycle Ann Arbor and is a cooperative partnership with the Genesee County Habitat for Humanity, Habitat for Humanity Haslett ReStore, and local Urbanwood producers. This program was initially coordinated by the Southeast Michigan Resource Conservation and Development Council and received early financial support through grants from USDA Forest Service Wood Education and Resource Center.
