Urban Wood Project

With the assistance of a U.S. Forest Service Southern Region grant, there is a new infusion of effort to improve the utilization, marketing and value of trees removed from small forested parcels and urban areas. These actions will not only improve the use of these valuable wood resources, but it will also bolster Virginia’s forest products economy. Recently the Virginia Urban Wood Group was formed to focus on this opportunity and promote the better use of urban trees. We encourage you to visit the newly launched webpage to view the mission, goals and some great urban wood success stories:  www.vaurbanwood.org
