About Us

Sourcing and Distributing Reclaimed Redwood, Responsibly.

We reside on the confluence of Ohlone, Tamien and Awaswas territories, in the traditional homelands of the Matalan tribal band. We are deeply indebted to the original stewards of these and all lands and ecosystems worldwide humbly offer our lives in servitude of our ancestors and the future inheritors of this planet.

The vision for Good News Wood Salvation started as a result of our need for wood in our tiny homes and a desire to birth our deeper vision, EcoCamp Coyote. Aligning with the ethos of The Great Turning, 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 as well as offering the highest quality reclaimed wood possible for end users.

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. We humbly accept the responsibility to steward these forests in their passing from one form to the next. In working with us, beautified space makes sacred space.

In deepest reverence,
Leo & Ero

Second Hand

We are inspired to limit wasteful consumption in all of our operations and use reclaimed fuels and materials for our operations whenever reasonable.

Ecosystem Restoration

Good News Wood Salvation resides in symbiosis as a part of EcoCamp Coyote - a hub for appropriate technology and methods necessary to manifest regenerative lifestyles. We live onsite here in our tiny homes, eat plant-based diets, compost extensively, grow orchards, gardens, and educating youth and adults.
