Using Urban Woods
While it is true that processing Urban wood into “value added” products presents some difficult challenges, it is also true that these challenges can be overcome. The wood by its nature must be processed on a small scale with a particular product or application in mind. It must be dried slowly and in a carefully controlled manner. It is not conducive to mass production.
Homestead Cabinet and Furniture are among several companies that are beginning to use urban woods to make a variety of products. Homestead has a long history of using other types of reclaimed woods such as barn wood. The processing of urban woods uses many of the same skills and machinery as other reclaimed woods.
An abundance of large trees grows in the cities and towns of Northern Utah. Homestead works with tree removal companies, sawmill operators, kiln operators and other wood product manufacturers to acquire saw logs, slabs, and dried lumber. Tree removal companies are contracted to bring selected logs to the mill at Homestead. The logs are milled into slabs or into lumber. From thence they become heirloom furniture and cabinetry
Urban Wood Initiative – Green Kitchen Ideas at Homestead Cabinet
Urban wood comes from trees that have grown in an urban setting that is removed from areas for various reasons such as Storm blowdowns, natural mortality, severe insect and disease damage, construction activities, and many other circumstances can change an urban tree from an asset into a liability. But what should the municipalities do with the tree?
Hundreds of species of trees grow in various municipalities across the US. These trees often grow to great size and can produce lumber of very high quality and wonderful character. Unfortunately, they are very hard to process into lumber. They are of irregular shape and size and the lumber tends to warp and twist as it dries. This is why little effort has been made to utilize urban woods.
Homestead Cabinet & Furniture company is trying to obtain as many of these trees’ as they can to make into beautiful cabinets and furniture for your home.
