We are proud that White Memorial Foundation is a working forest. The trees are not only a key feature of the forest that is valued for wildlife habitat and aesthetic beauty, but the trees produce wood products that are used for a variety of purposes on the property. Most of the wood that is harvested from the property is sold to local mills and firewood dealers, but a small amount is used here for the program's functions. A local sawyer who operates a portable sawmill mills lumber for White Memorial every few years. Oak, pine, and black locust are the species that are most used for constructing picnic tables and other products.
