To promote sustainability in urban forest management, the City of Peterborough has reclaimed lumber from ash trees grown in the City that have been affected by the Emerald Ash Borer.
This lumber will be for sale on Wednesday, October 11th and Thursday, October 12th while supplies last.
Location -> Waste Water Treatment Facility, 425 Kennedy Road, Peterborough (Building 25, first turning right as you go into the Waste Water Treatment Facility) Date -> October 11th and 12th Time -> 2:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.
The sawmilled and partly seasoned boards are available in various widths and lengths but generally are about 8 feet long and 6-12 inches wide. The boards are priced based on thickness; 1 inch thick costing $7 each and 2 inch thick boards costing $15 each.
All lumber is of varying quality and will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Note the City cannot reserve any of the wood in advance of the sale and the buyer will be responsible for loading all purchases into their own vehicle and removing the wood at the time of the sale.
