You have a connection to trees


Trees are part of our family history, our community history and are personally loved by each one of us.

Since our founding in 2001 we’ve focused on telling the urban wood story

In the video below The Wood Cycle shares the story of taking a tree and crafting it into a conference table. This story - shown through pictures - shares the entire process of a walnut log harvested on Drake Street in Madison, Wisconsin and crafting it into a finished product just 11 miles from where the tree once stood.

Paul Morrison, owner of The Wood Cycle, is a co-founder of Wisconsin Urban Wood; the nation's largest organization of arborists, sawmills and custom woodworking businesses aimed at using wood from the urban landscape. Paul also recently authored the book Tree to Table; Emergence of the Urban Wood Movement, available from Past 9 Publishing.
