City of Stoughton Urban Forestry Division

Wisconsin State Chapter | Northeastern Region

Did you know that the City of Stoughton makes lumber from terrace trees that are removed? Every year dozens of mature trees are removed due to health issues or storm damage.  Whenever possible, logs are salvaged and milled into usable lumber that is incorporated into projects all over the city.  The Public Works Department also owns and operates a solar kiln to dry all of the lumber produced.  Some of this lumber is available for residents to purchase for their own woodworking projects as well.  Contact City Forester John Kemppainen to find out more information.
