What do I do with:



Wood - Logs

Wood is a natural, porous material that comes from trees. It is often used for building and can easily takes on paints, stains, and adhesives.

Offer specimen trees for donation to mill and be reused. Consider offering to the community for reuse projects. Arbortists or tree trimmers may offer mulching services.
