My attic floor was home to nesting mice for years before I bought the house. I've kept the mice away, but the smell hasn't lessened after a year of ventilation.
Short of replacing the wood, is there any way to remove the smell?

You can try a few things:
1) Treat with odor neutralizer. Pet stores and hardware stores usually sell products designed to remove odors. For set in smells this may not be 100% effective.
2) Seal the wood. If you don't intend to use this surface as a final surface, a coat of sealant style paint (Killz is my brand of preference) will not remove the odor but it will lock it in the wood so you won't smell it again.
