Ever wonder what happens to the dead or dying tree or the one damaged by a storm after it is removed?  Often these are turned into mulch and are used for various projects throughout the city including playground surfacing.  For a limited time we are auctioning logs – Maple, Elm, Oak and Hickory – can be yours with bids starting at just $5.00. Visit Wisconsin Surplus Multi Municipality #15807-31 and search Madison Parks.
