About Us

Sourcing and Distributing Reclaimed Redwood, Responsibly.

About Us

We're invested in our environment, locally and globally, and started this business as a result of our need for wood in our tiny homes and off-grid homestead project (the latter now called called EcoCamp Coyote). Aligning with our ethics, we've developed a strong business model over the last decade where we now supply a substantial percentage of material to the reclaimed wood wall paneling market.

We offer a raw source of easily millable and consistent wood to manufacturers and fabricators for a fraction of the cost of barnwood with equal consumer appeal and considerably more ease of production due to strong local relationships and the ancient blessings of the Coastal Redwood forests.

Off-Grid & Fossil Fuel Free

We take direct action toward our goal to be fossil fuel free by 2020 using off-grid solar, biodiesel, waste vegetable oil and electric vehicles.

Beyond Sustainability

Using the principles of permaculture, GNWS strives to make the difference we can by growing food, planting trees, and closing cycles of ‘waste’.

Second Hand

From reclaiming wood, to dumpster diving, we are inspired to limit consumption through reusing and facilitating others to do the same whenever possible!

Ecosystem Restoration

Good News Wood Salvation resides in symbiosis as a part of ‘EcoCamp Coyote,’ acting as a hub for appropriate technology and methods necessary to manifest regenerative lifestyles.
