Each year, many trees are cut for other reasons than lumber and veneer production. Highway construction, orchard replanting and safety issues result in a large number of trees going to the landfill, or being cut up for firewood. In some areas, trees are blown down or die on the stump for various reasons. Currently, Exotic Hardwoods is producing veneer from trees salvaged in California and Hawaii.
