This ~150 year old Texas Pecan was blown over by Hurricane Harvey and normally would have been left to fall into the river. Luckily, the land owner reached out to the Texas Urban Sawmill for help! We are working this 400-acre tract of ranch land near Victoria, TX as one of the largest dedicated pecan salvage projects in Texas. A total of over 30 historical pecan trees will be salvaged. That’s over 3000-4000 years of combined Texas history found in these trees! This particular tree was blown over and left in a very dangerous position. Nearly a 30 feet vertical drop into the San Antonio River. Thankfully, we were able to save 25,000 lbs of hardwood pecan timber from this single tree. All of which will be processed into reclaimed lumber and eventually re-purposed into fine Texas furniture, Live Edge furniture and other forestry products. All our hard work pays off as we are giving these trees a new lease on life! We are working to bring more positive change to Texas and remain focused on tree re-use advocacy and the value it can bring to our community. Please help us share this story and our efforts across Texas!!!
