An authoritative guide to using timber culled from the UK's urban timber resource (street, park and urban woodland trees). This BRE Trust report provides guidance on the selection and identification of high value stems, processing, drying, transport, storage and the logistical problems associated with felled material. The report aims to promote the use of many common and exotic urban tree species for high-value solid wood products rather than processed for firewood, chipped to produce mulch or sent to landfill. The report provides guidance on how local authorities can maximize the value of timber produced in towns and cities and encourage them and other organisations to develop best practicable options for using solid wood produced during normal maintenance procedures.
