We throw away 50 million lbs of tree debris in Charlotte NC alone each year. This is very underutilized and TCA plans to change that. Our goal is to educate and change where a commodity comes from and how far it comes. We have the potential to have value in our trees, after their living usefulness is done.
I am creating the next generation of Urban Forestry. With the understanding that intentional planting of the right species can create a commodity in Urban Forest rather than a waste product. With a 15+ year background in the supply chain of commercially forested lumber and wood products I see a vision to the future of 10 billion inhabitants and the need to pay more attention to the local resource at hand, regardless where that might be.
