Tree group gets help for the cause

Montgomery Village, MD (August 16, 2007)- Chris Holmgren and Troyt York founded the nonprofit Community Woodlands Alliance in July 2006 to recycle into firewood and lumber trees from around the region that are cut down or felled by disease or weather. They pay for the trees in the hope that the organizations that receive the money will use it plant new trees. The men, hunting buddies, weren’t sure how their venture would fare. But things are looking pretty good these days.
