We are always looking for really cool, green products and this is about as green as it gets. Centennial Woods’ Snow fence products are salvaged woods that do not require much (if any) added energy to be reused.

Located in Laramie, WY, Centennial Woods began reclaiming and repurposing weathered wood from Wyoming snow fences in 1999. Snow fence is used along Wyoming’s highways to control blowing snow. These nine to thirteen feet tall fences are made of fast-growing, untreated, ponderosa pine and lodge pole pine from the Rocky Mountain region.

Before Centennial Woods began repurposing this wood, it was often burned or sent to a landfill when boards were replaced.  Since 1999, Centennial Woods has reused “more than 5 million feet of snow fence, saving snow fence owners more than $9 million and avoiding emission of more than 9,000 tons of CO2 emissions.”

Snowfence can be used as siding, trim, soffit, fascia, flooring, ceiling, and walls.  The products are used in their weathered state.  They are also available milled, surfaced, and wirebrushed for flooring or other applications.  Snow fence does not need to be stained or treated.
