The Baltimore Wood Project salvages wood from building deconstruction and urban tree care operations and removes this wood from the city’s waste stream. The wood is then repurposed and resold locally, creating a closed loop system. Reclaimed and upcycled wood products are available for sustainable building, furniture, energy, and other uses.
The deconstruction scheme creates 6-8 jobs for every 1 job that would have been created by demolition. The workforce is comprised of low income residents from Baltimore that faced barriers to employment. The training and employment of this population contributes to the economic, social, and environmental resilience of our communities.
