CBS News Features Report on Baltimore Urban Wood Project

Furniture made from urban lumber promotes sustainability, job growth in cities

The Baltimore Urban Wood Project was showcased in a report aired by CBS This Morning on Dec. 12, 2020.

CBS News reporter Errol Barnett focused on how wood is being salvaged from dilapidated rowhouses and urban trees in Baltimore to produce furniture, create jobs and keep these repurposed materials from ending up in the  waste stream.

In addition to the Baltimore Urban Wood Project, the report features representatives of Urban Wood Rescue of Sacramento, CA, and Room & Board of Minneapolis, MN, which has used a lot of Baltimore urban wood to make furniture.
