Arboriculture Historical Society

We take great pride in preserving arboriculture’s rich history. The historic Belle Isle Saw Mill in Detroit, the first saw mill in the nation to put a wood utilization program into place, will become a museum for continuing education.

In its working state, the Belle Isle Saw Mill helped Detroit process the wood from all the trees that were removed due to decay and disease into lumber that could be reused for other projects.
