Urban Forestry

An Adliberate film http://www.adliberate.co.uk for WoodlandsTV http://www.woodlands.co.uk/tv
Here we see cabinet-makers Jeff Segal, Paul Shrubshall and Andrew Marsh as they work together to mill a giant beech tree using an Alaskan chainsaw. The 200-year old tree was rotten with disease and therefore unsafe to leave growing within a residential environment. Keen conservationists, they like to use recycled timber in their work and hope to find `Spalted Beech` to incorporate within their designs.

Shrapnel, anti-aircraft shells… urban forestry is complicated in London! Nice job of showing the preparation and thought that goes into the whole process, from getting approvals for removing the tree to leaving mementos for the residents, and thinking of highest-best use of each type of wood within the tree. Really nice!
