Recycled Wood

What is recycled or reclaimed wood?

Reclaimed or rediscovered wood comes from demolition projects, urban tree salvage (dead, fallen, or diseased trees), unproductive orchards, or landfills. Reclaimed woods are the soundest choices for protecting forests. While some woods contain nail holes, wormholes, and other signs of wear, others contain dense, tight grains, and are remarkably free of defects.
