I don't see many doing this, but I came across a company that created a green timber salvage operation in relation with the city (in contrast with a reclaimed wood operation for personal use, which is rather common). So when the city arborists cut trees or limbs for urban reasons, instead of chipping the wood to nothing, they call this company that collects the cants for building products (picnic tables, furniture, etc) that go back to the community via their workshop storefront. Cool idea.
