Video: Urban Sawmilling in Hawaii

Episode V of Wood-Mizer’s Urban Sawmilling Series profiles Kamuela Hardwoods of Hawaii. The business was started a dozen years ago by Josh Greenspan, an ISA certified arborist, and Alex Woodbury, a sustainable building consultant and woodworker.

“Up until recently, as much as 33% of our waste stream produced by our small island population of under 200,000 people was in the form of green waste, and in that green waste was an untold number of millable urban trees,” Wooodbury said. “For almost a decade we’ve been diverting some of that waste and producing beautiful sustainable lumber with it.”
