Marin Community Benefit Cooperative Log Mill

An important part of our Mission and Work is about getting the best possible use and highest value from our local resources. Our urban forest presents one of the most natural, beautful, exciting, economic and healthy opportunities for community benefit. The  benefits are significant: more local jobs, locally made products and materials, local business opportunities and adding up to a much healthier, stronger and more sustainable local economy.


This effort also about offering a competing solution to using wood for momentary energy and releasing even more carbon dioxide into our atmostpherely.


The saw mill we are speaking of and will build will not be much different than this one from yesteryear (above) yet will produce much of the same high quality lumber for everyone to enjoy and benefit.

Old Mill in Old Mill Park, Mill Valley CA. Built by John Thomas Reed around 1836.  Many local to Marin will recognized this picture of the Old Mill.


Mill operations will also have a number of portable mills to reach fallen trees in some of our remote areas and narrow hillside roads.
