Webinar information

Creating a small business is always a challenge. For urban wood enthusiasts, that challenge is even more pronounced. Enterprising urban wood workers navigate to find locally-sourced wood; haul fallen logs to their workshop; sort the logs by species; acquire and operate equipment to saw, dry, and mill the wood into slabs or lumber; and market their products – from slabs to furniture – to generate a steady flow of customers.

This panel of four urban wood professionals will share their stories of how they established and refined their business model to operate in the black year after year.

Panelists

Ned Gearing – Owner, Rocktown Urban Wood – Harrisonburg, VA

Kevin Svara – Carpenter, Contractor, and Designer; Svara Restoration – Durham, NC

Phil Long – Owner, Bee Tree Hardwoods – Swannanoa, NC

Jennifer Alger – Co-owner and President, Far West Forest Products – Olivehurst, CA

Is this webinar for you?

This webinar is intended for arborists, urban foresters, landscape architects, and wood processing specialists. It is additionally intended for those in pursuit of starting an urban wood business or just wanting to learn more about the urban wood movement. Anyone who has a love for urban, salvaged, and reclaimed wood will also benefit by learning more about the unique business structure that is growing across the United States.
