New Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World Features Reclaimed Wyoming Snowfence Products

Altoona, Iowa Store Includes Wood Fixtures Fabricated From Centennial Woods Green Building Materials

LARAMIE, WY--(Marketwire - November 5, 2009) - Centennial Woods announced today that the newest Bass Pro Shops store features the company's reclaimed snowfence wood products. The 145,000 square foot Outdoor World, located in Altoona, Iowa, is the fifth Bass Pro Shops property to feature Wyoming snowfence. It was the only new store built in 2009 by the retail giant.

"We continue to be amazed by the rustic atmosphere that the Bass Pro Shops fabrication shop accomplishes with our reclaimed products," said Centennial Woods product manager Grant Porder. "For those attempting to capture that special rustic feel in their projects, they'd do well to look at the design and execution in the Bass Pro Shops stores."

Centennial Woods reclaims and processes snowfence materials into exterior products like siding and soffit and interior products like flooring, ceiling treatments, trim and wainscoting. The unique wood is also increasingly used for furniture, doors, window trim, cabinets and specialty fixture applications. The wood comes in five basic natural color schemes, in 1x6, 2x6, and 2x8 inch dimensions and in lengths up to 16 feet.

About Centennial Woods

Before Centennial Woods began harvesting Wyoming snow fence, older boards were often left on the frame until they failed and then burned or thrown into a landfill when replaced. Centennial Woods discovered the wood's strength and beauty and vowed to rescue and reuse it.

Since 1999, Centennial Woods has been maintaining and reclaiming snowfence from the mountainsides and open prairies of Wyoming to create its line of interior and exterior specialty wood products for residential and commercial use around the world. To support its reclamation mission, Centennial Woods has developed an international market for this green Wyoming export. To date, Centennial Woods has reclaimed 6 million linear feet of Wyoming snowfence, the equivalent of about 105 miles, keeping more than 10,000 tons of CO2 from being emitted into the atmosphere and saving the state of Wyoming and other entities more than $10 million.

Centennial Woods' reclaimed Wyoming snowfence is naturally dried for decades by the Wyoming wind, which produces an intensely beautiful, perfectly dried, strong and true reclaimed board. Centennial Woods is a member of the US Green Building Council (www.usgbc.org) and is proud to be one of Wyoming's great green product companies. Learn more on the web at www.centennialwoods.com.
