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. 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. 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.

Centennial Woods® was founded in the Laramie area in 1999. Over the years, 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.
