Deep in the tropical forest of the Guyanas, lies a lake called Brokopondo.

The Brokopondo Reservoir is about 1500 square kilometers (580 square miles) which is about 9 times the size of Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire.

The lake was created when a hydroelectric dam was built in the mid-sixties. At the time the timber had little economic value and was left to be flooded. Now fifty years later the perfectly preserved timber is being salvaged.

DMG in collaboration with the salvors brings to the U.S a wide variety of species. Reclaimed from the depths of lake Brokopondo this environmentally sound harvest is now available for your special project. Wide live edge flitches for bars and table tops, decking and sawn lumber. A letter of authenticity is supplied with each piece attesting to the origin.
