Last month we posted a press release from the Habitat for Humanity Wisconsin’s Rescued Wood Program. It discussed the organization’s partnership with the City of West Bend, WI, in which city trees removed because of infestation by the emerald ash borer or other reason are sent to a local sawmill operated by Habitat for Humanity. Lumber milled from these trees is either being used in homes constructed by Habitat or sold at its Restore operation.
More recently, WISN of Milwaukee, an ABC affiliate, ran a report on the Rescued Wood Program. Here’s a link to the 2-minute feature: http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/good-news/infected-trees-recycled-into-wood-for-homes/vp-AAmH5E2.
