Max Taubert saved millions of board feet of old growth wood from going into landfills. He started reclaiming wood from industrial sites long before recycling was mainstream. It's hard to go out in Duluth and not be surrounded by wood that he had a hand in reclaiming. Some examples include the timbers of the Enger Tower pavilion and tables all over town at places like Pizza Luce and OMC. He loved being on the road, coordinating at demolition sites and getting huge amounts of wood saved for new life. He was an admirable renaissance man. May he rest in peace and may his legacy live on in the wood that surrounds us.
