Sculptor Jim Long is just one of many who have begun to see the potential of urban wood in the Chicago area. WGN9 News recently reported on Long’s dedication for creating art out of this valuable community resource. For one of his most recent projects, Long brought his chainsaw and a ladder to Nichols Park in Chicago’s Hyde Park area. There he got busy sculpting an ash tree killed by the emerald ash borer into a howling wolf. Check out the video and accompanying article on the WGNtv site..

Urban Forest Products Alliance
The Tri-State Urban Wood Marketing and Certification Collaborative, of which the Illinois Wood Utilization Team was a member, held a series of three roundtables involving key players in the wood products, urban forestry, government, and green building and products sectors. As a result of these sessions, industry, government, and non-profit leaders came together as the Urban Forest Products Alliance (UFPA) with the mission of advancing the highest and best use of the products of sustainably-managed urban forests and the vision of putting all wood from urban trees to good use. For more information on UFPA, please join the Urban Forest Products Alliance LinkedIn group, Urban Forest Products Alliance or visit the Urban Forest Products Alliance website.
