Baltimore Wood Project Tackles Two Urban Waste Streams

baltimore-wood-projectThe Baltimore Wood Project aims to transform wood from both felled urban trees and reclaimed from old buildings – including 4,000 row houses slated for demolition – to resell locally for building, furniture, energy and other uses.

This statement from the project’s web site serves as a mission statement: “Wood is an abundant, renewable resource — we should use it more. The Baltimore Wood Project brings new partners and ideas together to be smarter and more thoughtful about urban wood ‘waste’ in the city. Rethinking Baltimore’s wood waste streams can save money, create jobs, provide green materials and beautifully reclaimed products, and help the city achieve its vision of a sustainable future.”
