Full Circle Urban Forestry Takes Root in Elkhart, IN

Elkhart-Urban-Wood-LogoFull-circle urban forestry is alive and well in Elkhart, IN.

Since October 2012, the Elkhart Environmental Center (EEC) has partnered with city’s Forestry Division to create the ElkhartWood program. Through this program, high-quality logs from city trees are made accessible to the Elkhart Wood Products Network, which is comprised of sawyers, woodworkers and others in the local wood products industry. Proceeds from the sale of these logs supports community tree plantings.

In addition, the ElkhartWood program supports workshops and educational opportunities related to urban forestry and wood products.
