#collegesafety | Help Give Campus Trees New Life: Attend the Inaugural WVU Lumber Sale | E-News

To help give new life to campus trees — both historic and non-historic — that have been removed for safety reasons, the Office of Sustainability, the Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design and the WVU Tree Campus USA committee are partnering to host West Virginia University’s inaugural lumber sale July 30 from 2-6 p.m. and July 31 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the event tent outside the Creative Arts Center, 1 Fine Arts Dr., Morgantown.

The event will provide members of our campus community and the general public the chance to purchase salvaged wood from campus trees for woodworking projects.

The useable wood from several recently removed campus trees has been milled into pieces of lumber and dried for this unique upcycling opportunity.

Customers will have the option to get their pieces of lumber branded with the Flying WV logo or they may choose to leave their timbers plain.

Pricing for the lumber will range from $1 to $3 per board foot depending on wood type. Most boards have been milled to approximately six-to-eight feet.

The sale is cash only, and all proceeds will support continued tree planting and maintenance on campus.

Visit the Office of Sustainability website for more information. The site also includes WVU’s current tree inventory and information on how you can get involved with the University’s Tree Campus USA program.
