Compare that to the recent removal last week of a majestic, 70+ year old, 70+ foot tall Torrey Pine in an older San Diego neighborhood. Virtually of the tree was put through the chipper. I was shaking my head thinking, "If this were Mexico, that tree would have been turned into a tremendous amount of furniture and art work."

When I was going through the woodworking program at Palomar, the school was very active in urban forestry. One of the first-year requirements is to work for a couple days in the mill. The school has its own sawmill and drying kilns. They receive lumber from all around the region usually the form of trees downed after storms or during construction projects.

I'm gonna guess, if that tree was chipped, it may have been diseased, or have too much internal stress to make it viable for making stuff.
