Recycling The Urban Forest

Producing high quality hardwood lumber and furniture from the Chicago Urban Forest.

Horigan Urban Forest Products recycles the urban forest to the highest possible uses. We use the same trees that go to firewood or mulch, and turn them into usable hardwood lumber. 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 by sequestering it as hardwood lumber.

When trees come down naturally or need to be removed, we will mill and kiln dry them. This beautiful wood is produced without a single tree being removed for lumber. We work with designers, builders, and individuals to create unique projects. By using Horigan Urban Forest Products you are guaranteed that the origin of the lumber is from the Chicago area urban forest. In many instances the address and history of the lumber is known.
