There are an estimated 293 million urban trees in Georgia according to a 2009 US Forest Service. Trees provide numerous benefits and greatly add to quality of life in cities and suburbs. However, disease, storm damage and natural mortality result in the removal of many thousands of trees every year. What becomes of this large source of fiber? This workshop will address this issue as well as some of the barriers and opportunities of utilizing wood sourced from urban and suburban areas. Funding for this workshop is provided through a US Forest Service grant.
