Circular UrbanWood Triconomy
Ann Arbor, Michigan
In the fall of 2022, Ann Arbor committed to adopting and piloting our first Circular UrbanWood Triconomy™ or CUT Model™. In collaboration with the city, we were able to produce this informative overview of the CUT Model™ and its benefits in contrast to business-as-usual.
If a tree has to be cut down, it often becomes waste. Some people are now using that urban wood as a resource, turning those trees into furniture, bridges, and even guitars.
