Ottawa Valley Log Salvage


Our Logs

Our heritage logs have been slumbering, undisturbed, for nearly a century or more in the depths of the Ottawa River. This cool, dark, low-oxygen environment has preserved the wood’s quality and drawn out its sap, leaving it with a rich, technicolour grain that simply can’t be matched.


By virtue of maturing with unhurried precision under a thick, virgin forest canopy, our old-growth logs are 20 percent stronger, with a tighter grain and a richer depth of colour, than any wood harvested today.


Our lumber has been kiln dried, planed, and formed by local specialists. Our quality guarantee ensures that you’re happy with your timber the moment it arrives.

- 1x4, 1x6, 1x8, 1x10, 1x12
