Video: Urban Sawyer Awarded Grant from Cal Fire

NBC Bay Area news recently aired this profile of Nick Harvey, owner of Bay Area Redwood, as part of its “Climate in Crisis” coverage.

Harvey, a former scientist at the Lawrence Livermore Institute, now operates a mill to convert trees mainly milled in the area’s urban forest into lumber for custom furniture and other value-added products. He was recently awarded a forestry grant for Urban Wood and Biomass Utilization from Cal Fire. Harvey plans to use those funds to further his efforts to salvage wood from urban trees and to plant news trees.
