Coming Soon: i-Tree Marketplace

The Urban Wood Marketplace provides a simple, unified tool connecting urban wood harvests to the users of removed trees, helping reduce waste. Anyone can browse logs in the Marketplace and contact log owners about availability. Organizations can register with the Marketplace and use the built-in tools for data collection and management to post their own logs and connect with users.

To take a look at the Marketplace, you can look at the beta webpage at https://wood.itreetools.org/market/map  If you have any questions, please contact Dave Bloniarz at bloniarz@eco.umass.edu

    Can we kindly suggest that the first best use for urban wood is wood chip mulch distribution within the entire urban area. Most urban soils remain bare with no organic layer to prevent erosion, reduce compaction, stabilize soil temperature, retain moisture and provide nourishment for the microbial community which should be living in that soil. Without that organic layer, a soil cannot be the living organism trees are so desperate for it to be. Rather than ship removed trees wherever, consuming energy, trees should be chipped and used locally, providing best support for recycling of urban wood as well as the living urban ecosystem.
