The Importance of Urban Lumber

Urban lumber is produced from trees that are removed for reasons other than harvest of their lumber. These are the trees all around us - in our yards, parks, and right-of-ways. Urban lumber is plentiful, local, and a renewable resource with unique design characteristics.
