Tom's vision for Lumbercycle was to create zero waste utilization of trees. Lumber is first on the list for woody biomass utilization. With off cuts, sawdust, small logs and branches, you can produce mulch, firewood, biochar, animal bedding, and so much more. Too many decent logs for lumber are wasted in the overproduction of mulch and firewood. Wood has tons of uses, but there is enough in a single tree to go around for every intention and setting up an efficiency priority list ensures that the value of a trees afterlife is optimized.
