Diversion program benefits:

Save and repurpose thousands of tons of urban wood. Put a valuable source of material that didn’t previously exist into the local wood economy. Became a positive thing for the city to showcase. Provide jobs. Educate people on urban wood. Save the city and residents money

Year program Started:

2016

All city trees (and all parts of the trees) go to Camp Small (CS). The CS staff are responsible for separating all materials between lumber logs and mulch logs/branches/brush. The lumber logs are then sorted by species and graded by CS staff. Lumber logs are available for sale to the public or to be utilized by the city for projects or to turn into lumber to sell to the public after being kiln dried at CS. Some logs are processed by CS staff via a portable ban saw and then kiln dried on site. That lumber is then available for sale to the public or available to utilized within city projects.
