Northeast Iowa RC&D assisted Wild Rose Timberworks in obtaining a grant to help them expand their business. The RC&D also provided marketing for the business for an extended period of time. Through the Wild Rose Timber works project the RC&D was able to help the owners add value to Iowa woodlands and wood products. Wild Rose is able to utilize local timbers for their structures, including timbers from their customer’s land, if suitable for the project. They carefully select each part, and cut joinery and plane surfaces using traditional hand tools. The resulting structure maximizes the value of the timber.
