Ways to use a tree
After cutting down a large tree on its new building site in Wake Forest, Wake EMC made the wood go a long way locally. The co-op donated three large truckloads of wood to St. Catherine of Siena Church in Wake Forest for its firewood mission that helps keep families warm in the winter. Also, Neil "Buck" Buchanan took a forked top section of the tree to create a chainsaw carving for his Lumpy's Ice Cream shop in Wake Forest. Wake EMC will also use two large logs from the tree as lumber for its new building.
