After a tree removal job, many homeowners wonder what happens to the wood after the tree service company leaves their property. The most common question is “do tree removal companies sell the wood?”
The answer is it depends. If the project involves removing rotted, diseased, or damaged limbs or trees, most softwood along with the scrap that gets chipped on site is typically hauled to a processing plant. These will be made into mulch. An alternative is sending it off to a mill to be turned into paper pulp.
Property owners occasionally request to have the wood chips deposited right on the property. But more frequently, the wood chips and mulch are donated to various local communities for use in public spaces for trails or erosion control. Sometimes volunteers request these materials to be donated for playgrounds, daycare centers, and schools. So this means even these poor quality branches and limbs can be recycled and made into something beneficial to the community.
As for the pieces of wood that are in better shape, there are also a few places they could go. Some homeowners ask to have the tree service provider to leave some of the hardwood behind. These are homeowners who are looking for an alternative, sustainable fuels for heating their homes. The logs could be used as firewood.
The tree service company will then remove leaves, branches, and limbs that are diseased and damaged, in order to leave behind the rest in manageable sections for the homeowner to cut and split to size when they need it. Homeowners like to keep the remaining hardwood for themselves, for a friend, for their neighbors, or their family members to use. Traverse City Roofings will make sure that the wood left behind are inspected and proven to be sound.
All the other hardwood not kept by the property owner will be hauled away by the tree service provider. It can be brought back to the shop and processed into firewood that can then be sold to private and commercial customers. Hardwood can be processed into many different things. So a tree removal job is a great opportunity to recycle and repurpose large amounts of wood.
