Behind the Scenes: Re-Co BKYLN

We had a great time visiting Re-Co BKLYN in Williamsburg! Re-Co BKLYN is a lumber mill that specializes in urban harvested lumber. This means they take trees that fall or are removed due to safety hazards, and re-claim them into slabs.

They work with local arborists, tree services and city parks departments to locate downed trees and trees slated for removal. This method reduces unnecessary logging and waste, deforestation and high lumber prices due to shipping expenses.
