Another picture by Joe Ledford of The Star from the recent article by Lynn Horsley regarding #KCParks Forestry's partnership and the new grant-funded wood utilization program. #urbanlumber #EABJason Hake (left) working on the forestry crew for the Kansas City Parks and Recreation department made some final cuts on the big ash tree while Jose Reyes also on the forestry crew for the Kansas City Parks and Recreation department move around to cut some of the smaller branches after the emerald ash borer’s infestation took over the tree at 50th Terrance in Kansas City. The larger sections of the tree were being sent to The Urban Lumber Company to be cut into in usable lumber rather than mulch as a part of a Missouri Conservation grant program. | KC Parks Instagram Photos
