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 1800ís and early 1900ís.
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 precious forests.
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.
