Resources: For Green Builders
- Reclaim Detroit Looking for wood from other reclaimed sources? Reclaim Detroit is salvaging wood and materials from the city's deconstructed vacant buildings as part of an innovative job training partnership.
- Urbanwood: Michigan’s Unique Sustainable Wood Products Customers are asking more and more for sustainable local products. While the marketplace is getting greener, it still can be difficult to find environmentally-friendly products that also support the local economy. The Urbanwood Project's network of partners in southeastern Michigan can help make this a little easier. Urbanwood's solid wood products are reclaimed from local urban trees that have been removed due to problems like the emerald ash borer outbreak. We can offer high quality lumber, flooring, and other products that have unmatched variety and character.
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.
