Need Downed Trees Removed? 

AHH_Woodlot11

Has your tree recently been blown over due to high winds? Or do you just need it gone? We do not fell trees, but if it’s lying on the ground, we can come in, as a free service to you, and remove the tree.

No high dollar service cost. No reasonable wood is refused subject to limitations such as travel distance, reasonable and safe access to timber, quality and quantity of timber, and manpower availability.

We provide a donation receipt for a possible tax write-off. Your donated wood will be cut, split, and stacked for seasoning after which it shall be sold at the Albany Helping Hands Keep Warm Woodlot. 

Please call or drop by the Shelter Office and ask for Dan Kress or Wayne Oaks to inquire. 

The Keep Warm Woodlot is at : 5150 SE SANTIAM HIGHWAY, ALBANY. Next to our Garden Market on Highway 20, one third mile east of Coastal Farm and Ranch.

The proceeds from these sales help fund critical community missions including providing emergency housing and hot meals three times a day, totally over 80,000 meals a year.
