Urban & Community Wood Utilization

Edited Urban streetscape_May302009_0010 4

We are building a collaborative network to promote sustainable urban wood utilization throughout the State of Tennessee.

What to Know

  • Each year, 15 to 30 million tons of wood from urban sources goes to landfills each year.
  • Recovering & reusing urban wood benefits the economy, our infrastructure & the environment.
  • Wood stores carbon, so repurposing urban wood reduces the amount of carbon released into the atmosphere.
