Cut & Dry Lumber is an urban lumber / tree recycling facility in Albuquerque's North Valley. Education is a huge part of our mission, because tree stewardship is long-term -- multi-generational, in fact. We encourage visits, especially for young people (ages 8+), to talk about our city's tree canopy and health, the economic and environmental impact of this kind of recycling, and what it means to the overall quality of life and long term sustainability of our area.
This is an interactive experience, students get a 1 hour facility tour. The tour covers the lifecycle of trees and teaches them how trees get turned into wood products, with lots of time for questions. They will also learn about the machinery, safety and health issues, and of course lots of wood! Overview handouts are available, including a contact list for those interested in exploring forestry-related careers. We can also provide materials for woodworking of all kinds. If your home school program incorporates woodworking of any kind, please ask us about pricing and availability.
