About the Urbanwood Project & the Birge Urbanwood Center
The Urbanwood Project began in 2005 as part of Recycle Ann Arbor and the Southeast Michigan Resource Conservation and Development Council's efforts to encourage more recycling of dead urban trees, especially those killed by the emerald ash borer. Many local businesses have joined this project to provide high-quality, sustainable wood products to southeastern Michigan. Where most people see a loss when community trees are removed, our partners know these trees can live on as green products that conserve resources and support local jobs. In 2017, Recycle Ann Arbor renamed the Birge Urbanwood Center in honor of Bill Birge, who recently retired from decades of service as an RAA board member. Bill is an accomplished woodworker and has been a passionate and valued champion of Urbanwood since its earliest days.
