Why Horigan Urban Forest Products
Keeping trees alive in another form for their second life is the best form of reuse. At Horigan Urban Forest Lumber, we are committed to making a positive environmental impact by “saving the forest one board at a time.” This commitment starts with our mission to source lumber from local trees as much as possible, creating a ‘farm to table’ way of life for businesses.
With our deep arborist roots, we have decades of experience caring for trees. It was a natural progression for us to find a way to complete the cycle of the tree’s life once it is removed, giving it a second life as hard wood lumber for legacy projects that will live on for years. Our woman-owned lumber yard is also dedicated to providing great customer service by supporting clients through the entire process, to not only ensure they get a quality product they love but also to provide a stepping stone toward environmentally sensitive building.
How Urban Trees are
We are committed to the environment by reducing the number of trees removed from the forest, the amount of fuel consumed for transportation, and the amount of carbon that is released into the atmosphere. Keeping trees alive as hardwood lumber for their second life is the best form of reuse.
7.2 Billion BDFT could be produced from trees removed from urban areas each year. That is enough wood to build 48,000 houses.
