Description

It is estimated that nearly 3 billion board feet of urban lumber are buried, chipped, burned or otherwise destroyed. Dr. Sherrill discusses how to alleviate at least some of this waste by harvesting this timber and using it for a variety of different purposes. There are clear, concise, step-by-step instructions on felling, bucking, sawing, and drying timber. There are case studies of how some communities have used this timber for public works projects and how independent tree services can convert this timber and sell it to both professional and hobbiest woodworkers. This is a much needed book that addresses an increasingly difficult problem faced by many communities.
