Our mission is to provide an alternative reclaimed wood product to the growing demand for reclaimed wood and barn wood while preserving our historic monuments. Our focus is to utilize dead standing timber, preserve our Ghost Towns, improve water sheds and restore our native streams and rivers. By-products are bagged and recycled into animal bedding. Our goal is to give our customers an alternative, low maintenance reclaimed wood product, which meets or exceeds all their needs and wants while providing the best customer service in the industry.
The Benefits of Montana Ghost Wood: A Bitterroot Valley Forest Product that has developed a proprietary multi step process to produce a new wood product that resembles reclaimed wood at half the price. We cut to exact specs, resulting in very little waste when the product is installed. At each step of the process, we cull defective boards. In comparison, 30-70% of reclaimed wood ends up being unusable due to rot, splits, and defects. We offer colors and textures adapted from the rustic wood barns, siding, and flooring found in historic and scenic Montana. Montana Ghost Wood is the perfect choice for the eco-conscious user wanting that reclaimed look. We strive to use SFI and FSC certified lumber, beetle and forest fire killed lumber. In this respect, Montana Ghost Wood products have truly been “Reclaimed From Mother Nature.” Green principles are at work from the creation of Montana Ghost Wood to the recycling of all of our wood shavings, chips, and sawdust into animal bedding and compost.

Montana Ghost Wood is a wonderful product, but it is not for everyone
Like all specialty, niche products, it is important to match the customer's expectations with the product characteristics. If you are in search of a monotone product which will remain unchanged with time, then Montana Ghost Wood should not be your choice. Montana Ghost Wood has intentionally been designed to change color, continuing to weather as time goes on depending on location and exposure with the ultimate goal to mimic the mottled appearance of old, unmaintained buildings.
