I need to purchase wood for a class project, but i didn't want to contribute to the greed of the lumber industry... so i started looking for places that sold reclaimed or used lumber. Of the companies and stores i reached, TWO sell it... but one of them (Smith & Hawkin) sells flooring and decking purchased from TerraMai, an entire company devoted to reclaiming, processing, and selling used lumber. They obtain salvage rights to wood buildings slated for demolition, and go in and deconstruct it... then mill everything down to a useable state, removing metal bits, rotted portions, etc.
If i ever have a house built, i want this company to supply the wood.
