What We Do

Sourcing and Product Options

Arc Wood & Timbers provides custom milled, unique specialty wood from salvaged, reclaimed and new sources out of North & South America. Our wood comes from old logs or vintage structures dating 100 – 700 years old. We specialize in distinctive, high quality material that is commonly used for exposed (appearance grade) structural beam & truss packages, large slabs, decorative post & timbers, wide plank flooring, contemporary and rustic siding, decking, soffit & fascia, box beams, casework and furniture.

 

There are 3 sourcing options when selecting wood from Arc

Salvaged

The 1st option is material that is milled from ecologically friendly forest salvaged logs. This material comes from blow down or dead standing trees that Arc Wood & Timbers salvages from the forest floor. Working with the State of Alaska (Division of Forestry), Forest Service (USDA), and the Ministryof Forest in British Columbia, we receive the permits required to safely retrieve these timbers without damaging the natural landscape. We also salvage decommissioned bridge stringers and boomsticks that were once used by the logging outfits for the transportation of logs back in the early 1900’s. We create an inventory of salvaged logs that are custom milled into a variety of exposed wood elements for both exterior and interior applications.

 

Reclaimed

The 2nd option with Arc Wood & Timbers is “reclaimed” wood sourced from vintage abandoned structures such as barns, warehouses, churches, factories and mills. We purchase these old structures and carefully dismantle them piece by piece. We further work with a network of “barn busters” throughout America that are involved in the reclamation of barns that allows us to enhance our reclaimed inventory of wood. From these historical buildings we accumulate an inventory of gorgeous hand hewn and original sawn woods that have aged naturally for a century or more. This material is refinished into beautiful flooring, siding, timbers, and furniture.

 

FSC® C051209 or SFI Certified

The 3rd option with Arc Wood & Timbers is material milled from sustainably harvested trees that are cut from well managed forests certified under the standards of the Forest Stewardship Council “FSC” or the Sustainable Forestry Initiative “SFI”.
