How Wood is Processed

Why are Urbanwood products different?

Dead trees in your city are cut down.

Instead of being chipped and treated as waste, good logs are hand-picked, saved, and sent to a local mill for processing.

Logs are evaluated for quality and then cut into lumber at a local mill.

Lumber is dried and finished by local processors.

Finished products are available at local Urbanwood Marketplaces, directly from the mills, and from urbanwood.org.

Customers purchase and use products -- a smart environmental choice that also supports the local economy.
