Lumber Making and Urban Tree Salvage
Transom has begun a partnership with the City of Providence and some of its private residents to provide portable sawmilling of urban timber otherwise destined for the woodchipper or worse, the dump.
We work with these clients to intercede when a tree is being brought down, and to coordinate with the companies doing the tree work to deal with this significant material resource, turning it into fine dimensional lumber and live edge slabs for future woodworking projects.
Transom worked with the City of Providence to help clean up following a string of storms in the winter of 2017. This large red oak was turned into many large live edge slabs and awaits its future life drying in our sheds.
