ATLANTA – Logs salvaged from dozens of trees removed to make room for a multi-housing complex were repurposed into stunning custom woodwork.
Gables Residential, the developer of the project, received the Outstanding New Development Grand Award from the Georgia Tree Council for its “thoughtful reuse by recovering, storing, and preserving the trees that were removed from Gables Vinings Village.”
Representatives of Eutree, a custom sawmill operation based in Villa Rica, Ga., photographed the award-winning project from start to finish. A sampling of those images is shared in this slideshow.
Eutree milled the logs that were salvaged during the removal process by Arborguard Tree Specialists of Avondale Estates, Ga. The tree care company not only focused on minimizing the environmental impact on the site during the removal process, but also cutting the trees to maximize log yield.
Eutree milled each log into lumber or slabs based on the intended use. The company also kiln dried the wood.
Madera Arts of Austell, Ga., crafted the urban wood into furniture. flooring, wall cladding, ceilings, tables and more.
