The urban wood movement is expanding as more local, state and regional networks take root across the U.S. and Canada. These urban wood supply chains unite private and public landowners, tree care professionals, sawyers, woodworkers and others who embrace the environmental and economic benefits of putting felled landscape and community trees to their highest possible use instead of seeing them enter the waste stream. At the upper end of the spectrum, the most desirable urban trees are being milled as lumber used to make custom furniture, cabinets, flooring and other wood products. This session represents a golden opportunity for woodworkers, lumber suppliers and others with an entrepreneurial vision to learn how to join the urban wood movement. Presenters include representatives of three organizations leading urban wood movements in their specific regions: Urban Wood Network, Midwest; Virginia Urban Wood Group, Southeast; and the Urban Salvaged & Reclaimed Woods, West Coast. The expert panelists will provide first-hand information on creating profitable and unique products from urban lumber and slabs. Rich Christianson, communications director of the Illinois Wood Utilization Team and formerly editorial director of Woodworking Network, will moderate the program.
