Northern Wide Plank
Join us to learn about…
Northern Wide Plank started in the early 2000’s with logging, sawmilling, practicing sustainable forestry and getting solid knowledge of timber. Inspired that they could take historical structures that would otherwise go to landfills and could preserve that history and bring inspiration to new built environments.
The Craftsmanship of Giving Wood A Second Life
Originating from barns/buildings throughout Canada/USA dating back to as early as the 1800’s. These structures where the wood comes from are at a point of collapsing and becoming hazardous. Demolition processes involve each structure being carefully taken apart to preserve its usefulness and reuse as much of the structure as possible for flooring and wall products.
What is FSC Reclaimed?
The FSC Recycled label was introduced to recognize the important role that recycling paper and timber plays in protecting the world’s forests. Unlike general ‘recycled’ claims, which require no verification, the FSC Recycled label provides assurance that all the wood or paper in a product has been verified as genuinely recycled. Learn more about how Northern Wide Plank source their recycled timbers responsibly.
