Urban Wood Rescue Grand Opening

The Depot Park

Sunday, April 29 1:00P - 4:00P

We love our "City of Trees" but what happens when urban trees are removed for reasons like disease or public safety? The unfortunate answer is oftentimes they are left at the dump to decompose. Instead of treating our trees like trash, Urban Wood Rescue salvages logs from recently removed trees and turns them into usable lumber. This way, our trees can live on in a new form and continue to provide beauty and benefits to our community. Attend our Grand Opening to learn more and for a chance to win a free live edge slab.
