Virginia Urban Wood Group

The Virginia Urban Wood Group is a coalition of groups and individuals who share the vision that every tree has a use at the end of its life — a level of use that honors its existence.

Mission & Purpose

•  To address the management needs and improve the marketing opportunities for wood products from small acreage forests, interface forests, and urban forests through outreach, education, and workforce development

•  To foster awareness, knowledge, and skills among homeowners, small acreage owners, and natural resource professionals and entrepreneurs to increase the overall health, productivity, and utilization of these forests

•  To facilitate best use practices of trees within urban and suburban areas by developing markets to support the recycling and utilization of these resources
