Centennial Woods™ is one of the largest providers of reclaimed wood in the world through maintaining and reclaiming the aged wood off of the hundreds of miles of snow fences lining the Wyoming highways. 6' to 12' tall snow fences endure the harsh elements to make travel safer during Wyoming's brutally long winters. It turns out that Wyoming's intense weather conditions are ideal for producing stunning and sustainable weathered wood! The Wyoming climate is so intense that our wood skips the energy instensive process of kiln drying, making our reclaimed wood a carbon negative product.
Before Centennial Woods™ began harvesting Wyoming snow fence, the older boards from the fences were either burned or thrown in a landfill when replaced. In 1999, Centennial Woods™ discovered the strength and beauty of Wyoming snow fence wood and vowed to repurpose it. By developing an international market for this sustainable and carbon negative Wyoming resource, Centennial Woods™ has repurposed more than 18 million feet of reclaimed wood (as of 2016), avoiding more than 18,000 tons of CO2 emissions as of 2017.
Centennial Woods™ reclaimed wood is made of sustainably harvested Ponderosa Pine, Lodge Pole Pine, Douglas fir, and Spruce from the Rocky Mountain region. Our wood is certified by Bureau Veritas on behalf of FSC® as FSC® 100% Recycled. Architects and designers love using our reclaimed wood as it contributes toward satisfying Credits MR3, MR4 and MR5 under LEED®. Unlike most barn wood or salvaged building planks, our wood has never been chemically-treated or painted; meaning no harmful off-gassing, lead paint, insects, or other contaminants will make its way into your home or business.
