Vanishing American Barns

Reclaimed barn wood is quite popular these days.  It’s used in custom furniture, wall coverings, framing and general décor.  It is valued for its rough-hewn texture and antique character.  One could say it’s better to reclaim used wood than cutting down a living tree.  Generally I agree.  However, the higher demand for antique barn wood has accelerated the decline of rustic American barns from the countryside.  I’m somewhat conflicted on the matter.
