Quick introduction - we are an antique and reclaimed lumber mill in Berwick, Maine. We only saw reclaimed North American material...no new stuff, and no exotics.

Our specialty is reclaimed Heart Pine. We have the strictest grading of that material in the industry and we're proud of it.

We also mill American Chestnut, Red & White Oaks, Live Oak, Eastern White Pine, hemlock, spruce, maples, hickories, walnuts, elm, cherry, ash, redwood, fir, tamarack, and anything else awesome that we can get our hands on.

If anyone has any questions or threads about old-growth species, North American reclaimed woods, please send something our way!

thanks,

- Longleaf Lumber

reclaimed is the same as recycled?

What do exactly mean? Material taken from older structures, denailed and then sawn into planks and boards? OR..... ?

Sounds like a great business to be in and a lot of history that would talk from the older structures if it could... Welcome also. :yes:

Yes - mostly we reclaim from old buildings. We actually have a listing of some of the most interesting buildings we have reclaimed wood from: http://www.longleaflumber.com/history-news/

We do also occasionally reclaim previously logged woods from old growth forests. We've salvaged old redwood stumps from the forests of Northern California and long-lost fallen American Chestnut logs from the mountains of West Virginia.

But yes, a huge part of our process is de-nailing.
