Centennial Woods® is all about repurposed wood; we build, maintain, and eventually reclaim aged wood from 100s of miles worth of snow fences that line the Wyoming roadways. Snow fences near highways and interstates help to keep snow drifts away from traffic. Eventually, the beautifully weathered boards get taken down and can be repurposed for a wide variety of interior and exterior applications. 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.
Founded in the Laramie area in 1999
Snow fence WOOD SERVED ITS FIRST LIFE KEEPING ROADS SAFE AND ITS SECOND LIFE AS GORGEOUS BUILDING Material
Over the years, Centennial Woods® has evolved into a business involving public and private partnerships building and maintaining Wyoming Snow Fences. Before these partnerships were established, snow fences were built until they failed, at which point they were burned or disposed of in a landfill. Today, Centennial Woods reclaims the wood fencing and repurposes it 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.
