Urbana Legacy Trees

 

Urbana’s trees are a source of shared pride in our community. With one of the most diverse urban forests in the Midwest, we can claim trees that are historic, unique, rare and one-of-a-kind specimens. So it’s little wonder that Urbana is one of 13 charter Tree City USA communities in the United States.

 

CU Woodshop is proud to support the Urbana Legacy Tree Program. There are now three tree's that have been officially designated. We have been invited to collect some lumber from the First Legacy Tree, the Sim Hackberry. Students of our school may be able to preserve a bit of history by turning lumber from this tree into something with lasting value, like pens, bowls or bottle stoppers. Anyone interested may be able to do the same with future classes as well. Contact us if you want more information on class options available.

Tip of the Week
  • Add Fractions Fast

    Adding 1-13/16 in. to 3-3/8 in. (or any other fractions) doesn't have to hurt. Just line up two rulers or tape measures side by side and read the answer instantly, with complete accuracy. It works for subtraction, too—just read the numbers in the other direction. CUWS Staff
