We work with 100% river reclaimed logs
Products from Maine Heritage Timber are cut from 100% river reclaimed logs – we do NOT repurpose old wood that’s already been used in buildings.
It’s an important distinction to make because the utility and quality of our wood is fully intact and without exposure to any chemicals. Wood recycled from old homes or industrial facilities is wood with decades of exposure to potentially harmful substances like asbestos or lead paint.
Our wood from the depths of the Penobscot River is as fresh and full of potential as it was the day it was cut so many decades ago.
All of our products are made with perfectly preserved old growth timber that’s been reclaimed from the bottom of the Penobscot River - the vital byway that once made Bangor, Maine known as “the lumber capital of the world”.
This preserved timber has rich character and stunning color. Its beauty is full of history and adds a unique that cannot be replicated.
