Urban Wood User’s Resource Guide

The Urban Wood User’s Resource Guide is intended to provide starting points for land managers, arborists, sawyers, woodworkers and other stakeholders to join or create urban wood networks. This guide includes local, state and national urban wood utilization groups; state sawmill directories and selected reports, case studies and other publications.

The Urban Wood User’s Resource Guide is a work-in progress and as such is subject to change without notice. This guide will be periodically updated. For listing consideration, contact info@illinoisurbanwood.org.
