About Redwood Empire

An American Story

“The Redwood Empire,” the majestic phrase coined during The Great Railroad Era of The Early 1800s to describe one of the most beautiful areas on the planet. We adopted the name to keep that majesty alive in bringing the beauty of Redwood to all.

The story of The Redwood Empire Company is truly An American Story. We started as a family business in 1971. We are still family-owned, but we have grown to service and supply the lumber industry not only in California but across the nation. While we have grown in size, our family values have not changed. We are still committed to the environment.

Today, it is no longer good enough to conduct business as usual. The building materials marketplace changes daily. There are exciting new ideas in design and construction, just as there are new ideas in marketing and distribution.

At Redwood Empire Company, we are committed to looking forward and to exploring new ideas, new partnerships, and new markets. That commitment extends to providing the best products and services you’ll find in the building materials industry.

We know that our success is dependent on the success of our customers. As a privately held company, Redwood Empire and its employees have the opportunity to be more flexible and innovative. As a result, you will find that we can offer products and services that are unprecedented in the industry.

With resources from the best suppliers and our time-proven distribution capabilities, you can count on us as a reliable supplier of Redwood, Douglas Fir, Plywood, Cedar, Treated, Pine, and a full line of Ipe’ decking, now and into the future.
