About Centennial Woods

World’s Largest Supplier of Sustainable Reclaimed Wood

Centennial Woods® is all about repurposed wood; we build, maintain, and eventually reclaim weathered wood from the hundreds of miles worth of 12 foot tall snow fences lining Wyoming roadways. Snow fences near highways and interstates help to keep snow drifts away from traffic. After 7 – 10 years the weathered boards are taken down and repurposed into a variety of interior and exterior products like wall/ceiling paneling, siding, and decor items. While traveling through Wyoming on summer road trips both kids and adults wonder what these large wooden structures are for. Locals like to tease tourists by telling them “they’re the bleachers for watching antelope races.” In reality, they are an important part of a winter driving safety program that helps to keep roadways safe and interstate commerce flowing.

The Wyoming climate is so varied and intense that after a decade our wood’s moisture content is only between 4% and 8% making it inhospitable to insects.  This allows our wood to skip the energy-intensive process of kiln drying which contributes towards making snow fence reclaimed wood a carbon-negative product. Centennial Woods® has repurposed more than 25 million feet of reclaimed wood and avoided more than 20,000 tons of CO2 emissions since 1999. Learn more on our FAQ page.

SNOW FENCE WOOD’S FIRST LIFE WAS KEEPING ROADS SAFE AND ITS SECOND LIFE IS RECLAIMED WOOD PRODUCTS

Over the years, Centennial Woods® has evolved into a business of public and private partnerships keeping winter roads safe by building and maintaining snow fences.

Previously, snow fences were burned or disposed of in a landfill after they degraded due to age. Today, Centennial Woods® repruposes the wood using state of the art milling equipment. For over 20 years we have been providing sustainable wood building materials to architects, designers, builders, contractors, and consumers worldwide.
