    Urban Wood Reutilization

    -Re-using the wood you remove from customers' property is a good way to reduce your transportation and dumping costs after a tree job. It is also good for the environment: reusing wood saves carbon by storing it in building materials.

    Many arborists are asking how they can help reutilize the wood they remove. Below we have listed companies and individuals in Metro Atlanta who need wood for floors, furniture, art, and other types of building materials. Each operation works differently, so you will need to contact them for how best to work with them. Some have equipment to pick up the wood; others may mill onsite, depending on need.

    We also list the Georgia Chainsaw Artist. He can give your client an alternative to grinding out a stump by making a piece of art from it.
