Ever wonder what happens to the trees that are removed by tree services? In most
cases they are cut up for firewood or taken to the local landfill and burned there.
That’s where Urban/Salvage Forestry comes in. I work with local tree services and
take the logs that they remove from homeowners yards. With the use of my own sawmill,
I can then cut them into slabs to make furniture or for arts & crafts. Yes, inevitably
some of it still winds up as fire wood, but a small fraction of the original.
I also search over a very large area for standing dead or dying trees. These also
either get cut up for firewood or left to rot in the forest. Such is the case with
the Pine Beetle infestation that is happening in our area. Not that there isn’t a
need for firewood, but I try to keep as much as possible from going up in smoke.
