This innovative Urbanwood program encourages municipalities to recycle their dead street and park trees into high-quality products.
Wood products from Urbanwood.org are made from a resource that would otherwise be thrown away. But this doesn't diminish the quality or safety of the products. The wood products sold here are always of good quality. In fact, you are likely to find a greater range of species and of unconventional character and grain than you will find from most lumber suppliers.
You can learn more about the wood used in this program from the links to the right.
The Urbanwood Project is a cooperative partnership between the Southeast Michigan Resource Conservation and Development Council, Recycle Ann Arbor, Genesee Conservation District, the Genesee County Habitat for Humanity, and several local businesses. This program is supported by grants from USDA Forest Service Wood Education and Resource Center. Additional technical support is provided by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. The Urbanwood Project is an equal opportunity employer and provider.
