At Wolf Creek Millworks we are concerned with environmental issues. To us it makes no sense to purchase wood cut from living and healthy trees when there is an abundance of it laying around in the local suburbs and semi-rural areas of Michigan. We mill this "found" wood into slabs /blocks etc which can be used to make beautiful objects.
The invasive species EAB (Emerald Ash Borer) is killing ash trees by the millions in Southeast Michigan. Wasting this timber in landfills makes an environmental problem a waste problem as well. We never move timber into currently uneffected areas. If we are cutting far from home we will mill locally and transport only clear lumber from the area. This is true for firewood too. If you are going camping please buy your wood locally close to the area in which you camp. More information can be had at http://stopthebeetle.info/
