A Man walks into a wood Shop...
The gentleman carried boards from a cedar tree that he planted as a child. In a thoughtful display of upcycling, he wanted to use the boards to build his own casket. He had no intention of dying soon but wished to repurpose his childhood tree into something that would last forever.
From that interaction with this particular customer, Carolina Urban Lumber's founder, Damon, started thinking differently about the trees around him and his impact on the world. He saw a vast amount of wood waste being sent to landfills on a daily basis and wanted to show the same amount of thoughtfulness with Charlotte's tree canopy that this customer exhibited with a single tree.
Carolina Urban Lumber was formed to support conscious conservation efforts and to divert and reduce the amount of trees that go to the landfill.
