How to Use a Recently Removed Tree

Share This Post

It’s not uncommon for Medford homeowners to have unwanted, diseased, or dead trees removed from their properties. While tree removal services like Advanced Tree and Landscape can safely dispose of the removed trees for homeowners, there are various ways you might want to consider “upcycling” your recently removed tree.


One of the most environmentally friendly ways to use a tree you have recently uprooted and removed is to have it chipped down into mulch. Mulch is fantastic for gardening and helps with soil protection, erosion prevention, and water retention.


A cozy fire on a cool autumn or winter night is a lovely thing, and you can have a tree removed this summer, cut it down into firewood logs, and have it dried and ready for the fire by the time the cool weather hits. Chopping firewood is hard work, but it’s incredibly rewarding.

Lumber Milling

If you had a larger tree removed from your property, you might have the opportunity to have it cut down into lumber if it was removed in large enough pieces. It’s not uncommon for homeowners to repurpose removed trees into lumber for decks, patios, fencing, and garden patches.


If you have ever wanted to try your hand at wood sculpting, your recently removed tree could be the perfect material. From chainsaw carving to whittling and lathe turning, there are many ways to use old wood, and it could be the perfect practice medium for you to cultivate a new woodworking hobby.

Tree Cookie Walkways

You’ve probably seen stone walking paths before, but did you think about using thinly cut cross-sections of your removed tree as “stones” on a walking path instead? Cutting your downed tree into thin “tree cookies” can be a great way to add visual interest to the landscape around your home.
