It looks like any sawmill in the forest – piles of cherry, walnut and oak tree trunks stacked high, trucks rumbling in and out, workers operating a saw. There’s one exception though: There’s seemingly no forest near its location, right off the highway in New Jersey’s largest city.
Citilog begs to differ. The Newark company takes unwanted trees from the so-called urban forest – parks, yards, streets and wherever else a tree might grow in a city – and turns them into furniture, flooring and other materials.
Although there are many benefits of having trees, they can become a nuisance if they become damaged, fall down or outgrow their space.
