Turning Urban Trees into Products with a Story

Creative Log & Lumber provides the complete supply chain for urban wood products. We salvage felled trees from homeowners and local arborists to manufacture lumber, diverting quality logs from the landfill or being cut into firewood. We can further process this urban lumber into flooring, trim, live edge slabs, custom furniture, and architectural components. Since 2011 we have salvaged over one million board feet of lumber from Kenosha and surrounding counties.
