Grown at home, sourced with pride.
Local businesses have a mission to serve their communities with the products and services they provide. So it’s only natural that they, in turn, value hiring area vendors and purchasing locally-made products.
When it comes to design and construction, sourcing local materials at high volumes — in particular, hardwood — can be a challenge. The U.S. is both a major producer and importer of wood products. That means your wood building materials may not have originated in Wisconsin, the Midwest, the U.S., or even North America.
There is an easy answer, and it requires you to look no further than your own community.
Wisconsin has a dense and healthy urban forest, where tens of thousands of trees need to be removed annually. Once milled into lumber, urban wood can be used anywhere regular forested wood is used, from architectural woodwork to interior finish work and flooring.
