Street Tree Revival evolved from a 12- month trial program between West Coast Arborists, Inc. (WCA, Inc.) and the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CDF). WCA, Inc. is a tree maintenance and management company serving nearly 300 cities, counties, and school districts throughout California and Arizona.
As a number of trees require removal, we partnered with the CDF to create an environmentally sound and socially responsible alternative to importing lumber from other areas and to reduce the demand of trees from natural forests. This recycling pilot program proved to be successful.
Years later, WCA, Inc. has expanded efforts to help reduce California’s carbon footprint and now provides all suitable logs and slabs to the Street Tree Revival program.
All trees have a life cycle, so we are making every effort to save the trees we can from ending up in landfills. We are harvesting a number of trees lost during storms, disease, or normal senescence and recycling this wood into useable raw lumber. our pieces offer a story unlike any other found in a lumber yard or furniture store as they’ve been salvaged from our city streets… a true street tree revival.
