What is Urban Wood Rescue?

The Urban Wood Rescue program salvages urban trees that need to be removed due to disease, pests, or safety issues and mills the wood into usable lumber. Instead of sending these trees to the landfill, Urban Wood Rescue gives a second life to urban trees.

Why Use Urban Wood?

When urban trees are removed and taken to the landfill, it allows them to decompose and release carbon back into the atmosphere where it contributes to climate change. By salvaging and reusing the wood from these trees, it gives the tree a second life and reduces our carbon footprint.

Smart Irrigation for Your Trees

Coloma Community Center

Saturday, July 14 9:30A - 11:30A

July is smart irrigation month! City of Sacramento and Sacramento Tree Foundation are partnering to provide a workshop that will help residents identify water deficiencies in young and mature trees and learn how to water trees with various irrigation systems while saving water and following the City’s new watering ordinance. Having healthy trees at your home will improve air quality, provide shade in hot summer months, save you money on your electricity bill and will improve your property value. Smart choices and watering methods are key to keeping your trees alive and healthy in a water wise landscape. Attendees will receive free hose timers and there will be a drawing at the workshop where one lucky person will receive a smart irrigation controller.
