This is a good read to refresh your understanding of reclaimed, sustainable, etc wood. Of course we know we should not be buying wood from unsustainable forests, but how do we know it is unsustainable?

I am not sure if this article answers that, however it provides some helpful direction.

"No material is more beloved for home decor than wood. But our love for the natural elegance of hardwood floors, furniture and fixtures has contributed to a loss of almost half of the world's original forest. Deforestation not only releases tons of carbon dioxide, the main greenhouse gas and culprit behind global climate change, into the atmosphere, but less forest cover means less C02 is pulled from the atmosphere. Deforestation also destroys habitats, leading to a reduction in biodiversity."
