Urban Lumber: The Future of Forestry 
with David Barmon, Co-Owner of Fiddlehead LLC

Every year in the United States an estimated four billion board feet of usable lumber from urban trees is turned into firewood, shredded for mulch, or simply taken to the landfill to rot. This is a loss of many billions of dollars in economic activity. Frankly wasting quality building materials is not something we can afford to do economically or environmentally, and it’s completely avoidable. David will talk about how to save current trees from the landfill and chip yard as well as share his vision for the future to retool our urban forestry system.

David co-owns Fiddlehead LLC, a sustainable landscape construction company and is a partner in Epilogue LLC, a company that mills urban trees in to lumber. David has been a strong advocate for urban lumber over the last decade. He has spoken at the prestigious International Living Future Institute’s annual conference as well as a TEDx event in British Columbia Canada. His work and ideas have been featured in many publications such as Green Builder, Sunset, Dwell, and Residential Architect Magazine. David was named Sustainable Business Oregon’s Emerging Leader in 2013.​
