About

Our mission is to promote the use of socially responsible and sustainably sourced urban wood while spreading the word about its benefits. Going back to the basics, urban wood has dynamic benefits. In environments where you live, work and play, urban wood is a clean resource that provides multifaceted health benefits. Continuing the long-standing history of wood reuse has been elevated as a priority by many including municipalities, institutions, and corporations in recent years. Our vision is to support resilient, connected communities by sourcing urban wood for the sustainable design movement. We are committed to providing those who choose urban wood with high-touch service and the quality, scalable lumber they expect from their millwork.

“Dwayne has been leading a behavior change that will be yielding benefits well beyond our existence!”
Laura Wyatt | Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources

“Without Dwayne’s long-term persistence in the pursuit of Urban Wood, the lumber we lovingly place in our buildings would still be limited to normal, unsustainable sources.”
Tom Kubula | The Kubala Washatko Architects

“The use of urban ash in our Mequon cafe creates beauty and interest visually, but also tells a deeper story of the material choice and its origin.”
Scott Schwebel | Colectivo Coffee

“It’s a great service to assure that the resources in our community are being sustainably recovered and used for their highest and best use!”
Jessy Servi Ortiz | Outpost Natural Foods

“Dwayne routinely goes above and beyond to help us source unique materials for our commercial projects in quantities either large or small.”
Aaron Tvrdy | Icon Modern, Inc.

“The products Wudeward has created from this still valuable wood are beautiful. They add a wonderful story to an interior environment.”
Lyn Falk | Retailworks, Inc.

“Dwayne Sperber has been a tireless advocate for the use of urban wood as a viable building material and his company fills an important role in the sustainable building industry.”
Juli Kaufmann | Fix Development LLC

Many common urban tree removal practices in the United States view felled urban trees as costly waste. We know that trees removed from our cities and communities due to pests, disease or circumstance are a resource worth saving. If recovered and repurposed, wood from our country’s urban forests could produce nearly four billion board feet of lumber each year, along with other useful products like mulch and firewood.

The Urban Wood Network drives utilization of urban forest resources to create the highest value forest products in an effort to maximize the value of removed urban trees. The Urban Wood Network builds awareness of the urban wood market by bringing together urban wood efforts, providing leadership and assistance, and by facilitating information sharing. It seeks to build a common understanding, language, commitment, and brand for the urban wood marketplace.

The Urban Wood Network has emerged as a rapidly expanding national association representing stakeholders up and down the entire supply chain including advocates, arborists, sawyers and custom woodworkers and currently has a membership of over 200 individuals, representing more than 20 states.
