URBAN FOREST /ˈɜrbən ˈfɔrɪst/


The collective amount of wood found in urban or suburban environments which is fit for reuse.

This term refers to all post-consumer waste wood which is eligible for input into manufacturing processing, including old furniture, structural timbers from demolished buildings, yard waste, and other consumer products.

The idea is to harvest from this forest rather than natural growing forests.
