Sunken log salvage

Salvaging sunken logs from Maine lakes and rivers is how we got into the reclaimed wood business and it continues to be a mainstay of our business. Loggers began using Maine waterways to transport logs for sawmill processing in the early 1600’s.  Since the weather in Maine changes quickly and dramatically, many of the logs were lost or abandoned during storms. Resting undisturbed, these logs have been perfectly preserved and protected from timber’s worst enemies—direct sunlight, pests, and oxygen. Centuries later, this sunken treasure is finally being recovered.
