Lumber not chips - Save the Trees
Organized by: Jonathan Greenberg
Within the next two months, a neighborhood will be built on some old farm land. My home is within this area and I've been friendly with the developer. When I heard they were going to chip all the old trees, I asked if I could harvest them. I was given permission and have spent $2400 so far to cut most of them down and get them ready for milling. To mill and dry the lumber, I will need $9,000 to pay for equipment and some labor to cut, move and kiln dry the lumber. Once that's done, it will be sold through our local Urban Lumber reclamation project. Profit will be given to local food banks.
