Awards we've won

Ways we have been recognized.  Over the past decade or so we have been working hard to develop the most complete and highest quality methods of reclaiming wood and stone. And it shows! 

2010 Environmental Excellence Small Business Award 
Elmwood Reclaimed Timber manufactures and markets high-quality reclaimed wood products. Every product created by Elmwood, including wide plank flooring, countertops, beams and cabinet lumber, is made by using wood salvaged from sustainable sources (structures that are condemned, abandoned or beyond repair) and is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council-Recycled accreditation. Elmwood has produced tens of thousands of board feet of old growth, currently unobtainable woods and stone without cutting down a tree or digging a quarry. Elmwood is striving to reduce paper waste. All of its product literature and mailers are printed on FSC Certified 100% recycled paper. Its advertising is focused on digital marketing and its website promotes and educates on green practices. Its entire inventory is measured electronically.What little scrap wood it has is used to heat the kilns used in the manufacturing process of its products. All of the sawdust created during production is sold to Shatto Dairy Farms for use as bedding material for their cows. Elmwood Reclaimed Timber employees participate in Adopt a Highway litter cleanups two to three times per year. The company has added two large Deffenbaugh recycling dumpsters to its facility and steel metal recycling dumpsters. Elmwood sales staff is in training to become LEED™ AP certified this year.
