Harvesting lumber from managed forests is responsible, but rescuing city trees felled by storms or construction projects is the ultimate feel-good enterprise. Instead of ending up in the chipper or the landfill, these downed trees go to Urban Hardwoods' Seattle mill, where they get turned into striking dining tables and coffee tables. If you're the hands-on type, purchase a slab of western walnut or chestnut and make your own creation.
