About OGR

Welcome to Old Growth Riverwood, We’re Glad You Stopped By.

Terrie_and_Chris_MetzOld Growth Riverwood began in July 2007 as a dream business for Chris and Terrie Metz. A family owned and operated business, they recover and process reclaimed wood near downtown Wilmington in North Carolina. The day-to-day operations at Old Growth Riverwood are done by the owners and their few employees.

At Old Growth Riverwood, we reclaim lost pieces of history and transform them into unique and beautiful wood products for your home or business. We process logs that we recover from the Cape Fear River as well as reclaimed beams from historic structures from the surrounding area. Bringing history into your home, we transform this one-of-a-kind raw wood material into gorgeous countertops, molding, trim, mantles, furniture and much more.

Drawing from over 12 years of recovery and reclaiming experience, we are committed to providing unique and high-quality products for any of your custom needs. Please feel free to give us a call at 910.762.4077 to discuss your next renovation or furniture project.

Old Growth Riverwood is committed to being green and environmentally responsible and does not cut down any living trees to produce our products. All of our products are made from existing logs, water submerged logs, rough cut lumber, or timber reclaimed from old homesites. Recycling at Old Growth Riverwood is a daily process. Our reclaimed wood waste is reused to make a variety of products. Saw chips are recycled by offering them to local horse farmers (free of charge). Recycling is part of life at Old Growth Riverwood. We bring history into your home, while doing our part to help preserve the future of our living forests.
