    Angel City Lumber

    Everybody loves trees while they’re standing, but In Los Angeles a felled tree immediately becomes “green waste,” garbage to be chipped or buried in city landfills. But the natural urban forest of our city overflows with usable trees which can be re-purposed into highly sought after lumber. Angel City Lumber offers a vision of Los Angeles in which trees felled in the city are given a second life in the hands of the artists, crafts people and builders of Los Angeles.
