Trestlewood makes the most of reclaimed wood

January 9, 2012

BLACKFOOT — When a potential customer whizzed past Trestlewood's yard adjacent to Interstate 15, he spied what he thought were railroad ties.
When Alice Cannon, a founder of the company with her husband John, tried to tell that customer that Trestlewood didn't carry or sell railroad ties, he asked to speak to a man.
Bob Cannon, Alice's son and one of the owners, also told him that much of the company's inventory is reclaimed railroad trestles.
"We started taking down a railroad trestle across the Great Salt Lake in 1993," Bob said of the company's beginnings.
