As the year winds down, we, at Redwood Empire Sawmill, are extremely optimistic coming into the new year! We have seen a marked uptick in the demand for Redwood on a national basis. We would like to thank all of our customers who have supported us through the years and are looking forward to new relationships in the coming year!
Redwood is making a strong comeback in all parts of the country! Consumers are realizing that, inspite of all the new decking items that have come on the market, Redwood, as well as all natural wood products, cant be beat!!
Washington — Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced today USDA’s strategy to promote the use of wood as a green building material. At an event this evening to launch the International Year of the Forest, Secretary Vilsack will lay out a three-part plan addressing the Forest Service’s and USDA’s current green building practices.
One of the most asked questions by the layperson in our field is what are the primary differences between using a composite material and using Redwood or any other natural lumber for your deck? To accurately answer this question I would like to focus on the biggest negatives that are associated with composites.
