Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
As part of our commitment to environmental stewardship at the park, we make a conscious effort to maximize the reuse of natural resources. Fallen trees are typically repurposed into insect habitats, creating a welcoming environment for wildlife and various creatures. Our grounds team diligently strives to minimize their impact on the terrain, ensuring minimal ground disturbance.
Other uses for the wood
The chopped wood will serve multiple purposes, including being utilized as fuel to heat homes and for splicing, a process used to repurpose signs and other items around the park. The grounds team is diligently striving to maintain the park’s natural beauty while also conscientiously repurposing resources to benefit its future.

Beyond its immediate practicality, the importance of reusing wood lies in sustainability. By repurposing wood from fallen trees, we reduce the need for fresh lumber, conserving our forests and minimizing carbon emissions associated with logging and processing new timber. Additionally, reusing wood promotes resource efficiency and reduces waste, making it an environmentally responsible choice.
