The Urban Wood Toolkit provides a comprehensive checklist for implementing or expanding an urban wood use network. Kudos to Jessica Simon, Margaret Miller and everyone else who participated in creating this marvelous series of documents. Read this month’s newsletter to learn how to register for this special webinar presentation. 

Also in this month’s Illinois Urban Wood Update: 

  • Read how Hoppe Tree Service of Milwaukee has taken a full-circle approach to urban forestry by launching the Urban Wood Lab, a retail outlet for lumber, slabs and wood products created from urban tree removals. 
  • Eutree, an urban sawmill and lumber supplier based in Villa Rica, GA, was honored by Green America with a People and Planet Award. 
  • Sawmilling “out-of-shape” logs to improve yield is the theme of a 2014 report available from the U.S Forest Service, Northern Research Station, in Princeton, WV. It’s worth a read by all of you sawyers out there.

Happy New Year!
See you in 2019!!
