Where do we get it?
We obtain our timber from dismantling old commercial and industrial structures
that are slated for demolition.- - old sawmills, graineries, wharfs, canneries
and warehouses. Much of the timber in these structures was originally harvested
in the 1800’s and early 1900’s.
Why do we reclaim or salvage old wood?
Wood is one of the most re-usable materials available anywhere and it can be
manufactured into a multitude of products. The use of reclaimed material
prolongs the usable life of the timber that was cut from huge virgin old growth
trees during the last century. This reduces the pressure of cutting our current
Recycling wood is a key component of preserving our limited inventory of
forests. Wood is renewable, however it is a very slow process - so why not reuse
one of the most reusable materials available.
