OUR MISSION

Old Wood hopes that our model will build well-equipped, trained local capacity to the end of creating global markets for scientifically, socially and ecologically planned micro-forest industries.  Our goal is to enable the locals to manage their own mountains and landscapes, and help them realize profit and benefit so they won’t have to destroy the natural resources in their area.  Wood products are everywhere, and we look for the highest, best uses for the most available species in forms both attractive, useful, and affordable to our sophisticated customers.

 

As a national-level wood flooring manufacturer, we use Ponderosa pine, Douglas fir, White fir and other wood species from regional forest management efforts as well as fire burned, ‘reclaimed’ materials. 

 

As one of the largest firewood producers in the Southwest, we use piñon, juniper, aspen, and other wood species from sustainable harvesting efforts around the area. 

 

We are always on the lookout for partners and collaborators with a shared vision for well-done forestry benefitting the “greater good”. 

 

Our goal is to provide our clients with high-quality and sustainably harvested bundled, bagged, or palletized firewood for retail or personal use. We will do everything that we can to operate always with our client’s needs in mind, and we will strive to provide the best products at reasonable prices to our valued customers.

SUStainability

Our forestry mission statement:

Old Wood is dedicated to the sustainability, improvement, and proper utilization of our forests, both domestically and abroad. We hope that our model will build well- equipped, trained local capacity to the end of creating global markets for scientifically, socially and ecologically planned micro-forest industries. Our goal is to enable the locals to manage their own mountains and landscapes, and to help them realize profit and benefit so they won’t have to “eat the elephants” in those very backyards. Wood products are everywhere, and we look for the highest, best uses for the most available species in forms both attractive and useful to our sophisticated clientele.

We use Ponderosa, Douglas Fir, White fir and other species from regional forest management efforts as well as fire burned, “reclaimed” materials.

Mesquite is gotten from well-run efforts in Texas, and our Piñon, Juniper, and Salt Cedar are generally from the Alamo Navajo Tribe. We have projects going in Hermosillo, Mexico and elsewhere for mesquite, oak and other interesting, well-gotten woods.

We are always on the lookout for partners and collaborators with a shared vision for well-done forestry benefitting the “greater good”.

Tribal

At Old Wood, who we work with is just as important to us as what we do or how we do it. Having the right partners, doing the right thing, is vital to maintaining a business that we can be proud of. Working with native peoples is hugely important to us, and through the years we have found that the opportunities for meaningful collaboration are vast.

 

Our goal is to create jobs for tribes, villages and groups of people who already live and work in the woods by creating viable markets which will sustain our mutual efforts to bring value to what is often the lowest grade of wood, but which can be effectively used in new and clever ways by combining Design and Technology.

These people are often masters in the woods, and it benefits both of us to work together. They know the mountains and the deserts that they live in, and they have a reverence for wood and natural resources that is wonderful and unparalleled. Special woods like Piñon, Juniper and Mesquite can bring value to desert land restoration and aquifer regeneration efforts, while at the same time providing much needed jobs to rural areas and beautiful products to our clients. 

Your purchase of our firewood may well be the job that keeps that person working in their rural home area. Piñon pine in particular has great social and economic potential, as it is abundant in tribal areas and makes an excellent source for firewood.

Alamo Navajo


Old Wood has had a close working relationship with the Alamo Navajo Band through an agreement to collaborate on a variety of projects with the School Board, which is the fiscal agent for most matters in the tribe.


We have partnered in several Collaborative Forest Restoration Grant efforts going “both ways”. We have trained their crews in the field to operate a variety of sawmills and forestry equipment, and they have sent us crew members to train on site at our facility. Acting as a firewood broker for Alamo Navajo, Old Wood’s high-volume firewood sales have helped lead the tribe to the point of self investment and the purchase of a new firewood processor in 2013. The effort helps sustain over 16 full time jobs!
