Reno sells firewood to general public

Did you know… Reno Urban Forestry sells firewood to the general public twice each year. During the months of September and March, the wood yard located at 190 Telegraph is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. for wood cutting.

The wood, which includes mixed hardwoods, is in log form and requires people to saw their own rounds for splitting.

The cost for the firewood is $75 per cord. Customers must first sign a waiver of liability and pay in advance in order to enter the wood yard. Waivers can be obtained at the Park Maintenance Office, 2055 Idlewild Drive, in Idlewild Park. Office hours are 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.

Complicated Tree Removal with 90-Ton Crane

Saturday morning in west Reno time-lapse video…

Signature Landscapes and NV Energy crews carefully worked together to remove giant branches overhanging high-power lines in west Reno last Saturday. This significant project was actually just the first step in a multi-day project that will result in the removal of two giants – an 85 foot tall cottonwood and a 90 foot tall Siberian elm. Each nestled deep in the back yard, bordering a day care and other neighbors.

As you can see, the neighborhood was out to watch this delicate balance of engineering and skill as the Signature Landscapes and NV Energy crews removed the trees.
