We save trees from ending up in landfills and turn them into usable lumber for people to enjoy for years to come.

About the Revival

All trees have a life cycle, so we are making every effort to save the trees we can from ending up in landfills. When city trees need to be removed, we preserve their natural beauty and also limit carbon emissions by, salvaging trees lost during storms, disease, or normal senescence and recycling this wood into useable raw lumber.

Our urban wood offers a story unlike any other, as they’ve been salvaged from our city streets… A true Street Tree Revival.

Our Roots

​25 yeas ago, West Coast Arborists, Inc., (WCA) started an urban wood recycling program in collaboration with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CDF).  (WCA) is a tree maintenance and management provider serving cities, counties, and school districts. Since a number of trees living within our City streets and parks eventually decline and require removal it became imperative to identify ways to salvage what we could.

Our Process

REMOVE

We remove damaged, dead, or hazardous trees from local cities.

REPURPOSE

We process quality logs into urban lumber to give them a second life. Logs unfit for lumber are processed into firewood or ground into wood chips in an effort to produce zero tree waste.

Mill

Our sawmill operations are based out of our SoCal location in Ontario and our NorCal location in Stockton. Offering both live edge and dimensional lumber. We offer custom milling services at both locations.

Replant

Our goal is to replant two trees for every tree that we remove to maintain a healthy urban forrest.

TRACK

We tag quality logs in the field with weatherproof tags that have removal date and city information. This allows us to share tree history and track material from tree to lumber.

Dry

We air dry and kiln dry our material depending on species requirements. Kiln drying allows the wood to dry evenly while both stabilizing and sterilizing the lumber. It can greatly reduce drying defects in hard to dry species and increases yield.

Guilt Free Urban Lumber
