Building an Integrated UF System Using Urban Lumber

Slides PDF


Every year in North America billions of dollars of potential lumber from urban trees is devalued as firewood, mulched or taken to the landfill. While trees are a great amenity, they are expensive to care for and remove. By planning for the future with urban lumber in mind, we can decrease costs, increase tree canopies and provide sustainably produced wood products. In this talk, David will give an overview of the major problems in urban forestry and how managing trees as seedlings all the way to time of removal can turn urban trees from a liability into an asset and give landowners an incentive to plant more trees.
