Today the Sacramento Tree Foundation celebrated the grand opening of the Urban Wood Center. Sacramento, as the City of Trees, has many mature hardwood trees and some of them have to be removed at the end of their lifespan. These ash, london planes (sycamores), redwoods and oaks can be a tremendous source of high quality wood for artisans and woodworkers. Affordable too.
The Tree Foundation created this venture to divert these logs from the waste stream and repurpose the wood to a higher and better use. All of the proceeds go to support the mission of The Sacramento Tree Foundation. There are wood slabs, dimensional cut boards, and ready made planters.
You can find the products and prices on the webpage, or you can visit the site at The Depot Thursdays 11:00 – 3:00; Friday 11:00- 3:00; Saturday 9:00 – 4:00 or by appointment Monday – Wednesday.
