Recycling wooden floors

What's the best way to take up a hardwood floor without doing a lot damage to the hardwood flooring. I'd like to reuse it in another place.
thanks all

Howdy consider being real careful. I would likely rip one board with a circular saw and then gently pry the flooring at nailing points up with a thin pry bar. If you want to practice i have a house in a small town in Nebraska that needs the flooring removed come over any time...

Yeah, I was kind of afraid that's how it would be. Been there, done that, so I believe I'll pass on the practice opportunity. My wife is still working on the floor plan anyway, turning two bedrooms into a master suite with bathroom and a hike-in closet.
Appreciate the reply.
