About Us

The urban forest is the treescape in developed areas. Urban logging is the practice of milling these trees for use by woodworkers.

Under the umbrella of Kemper Industries Inc, Urban Logging exists to divert valuable resources to a higher and better use. As arborists, we dissect trees in the course of removal. We are on the front lines in the discovery of the beauty which is contained within the wood. All fellow woodworkers understand the pleasure and wonder of opening up a piece of wood to discover the character, the figure, the color, the light reflecting quality contained within.

We are delighted to share this resource with our community of craftsmen and craftswomen.

It is recycled! All woods we process are taken for reasons other than harvesting of the wood. Reasons range from trees that have outgrown their location (become a danger to life and property) to storm damage or falling.
