This tree came down in North Hempstead, LI during Hurricane Sandy. It was brought to the North Hempstead landfill amongst thousands of other downed trees. While most repositories for Sandy material were very quick to chip, North Hempstead was not equipped to do so at the same pace. This gave us time to develop a relationship with the town. North Hempstead is leading the way with their recycling program and education in schools and they did not have a re-use stream for tree material. They were excited to have us re-purpose their waste. So far, we have saved over 100 logs from their chipper. In return, RE-CO BKLYN is making a custom, one of a kind chair for their visitor center.
