Cambium Carbon Finds New Life for Urban Wood Waste

If a tree falls in a city, but no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

Cities across the U.S. are losing their urban canopy. In fact, more trees fall in cities than in our national forests. (Roughly 46 million tons of wood and biomass waste!) Most of the wood that comes down is either abandoned in people’s yards, sent to a landfill or ends up in a burn pile.

Ben Christensen is the CEO and founder of Cambium Carbon; a company focused on addressing urban wood waste.

Cambium Carbon imagines a future that creates green jobs, supports local economies, and fights climate change. This week Ben sits down with WSTP to chat about the importance of greenery in urban areas, the threat of the Emerald Ash Borer, carbon smart wood, and local community investment.

With that, we’ll leave you with one final thought: Earth Day is this week. In honor of Cambium Carbon (or maybe just in honor of WSTP . . .), go hug a tree!
