Our goal with lumber milling and drying is to show that urban trees provide significant ecological and monetary benefits as well as that when it is time to take down diseased and dead trees, instead of dumping the trees we take down, we can make them a benefit to the urban community they were taken from. This is typically done in the form of furnishing and garden tools.
Recovering some or most of the wood from a tree and turning it into long lasting items like furniture serves to extend the time that all of the carbon is kept out of the atmosphere. Instead of simply dumping the wood you can make something new from it like a bench which can go back to benefit the community the tree was taken from.
While urban trees have considerable benefits large and dead trees because a considerable amount of risk. In urban areas, dead trees can cause unsafe situations There are more likely to fall on buildings. roads, cars, trails, and electrical lines than trees in forested areas. So once an urban tree dies or becomes large enough to be considered a danger it should be removed.
