Sustainability of Redwood

Redwood Reflects your Commitment to Living Sustainably

Redwood embodies the very essence of sustainable living. Redwood is a natural, long-lasting, energy-efficient wood and renewable resource that actually reduces greenhouse gas emissions.

Redwood trees harness energy from the sun and turn it into beautiful wood while cleaning the air at the same time. Our redwood comes from forests that are managed to meet or exceed California’s sustainability laws, which independent research has shown to be every bit as demanding as the standards set by both the Sustainable Forestry Initiative and the Forest Stewardship Council.

Redwood Empire redwood is harvested from family owned forestlands along California’s coast, where trees grow slowly and develop the strength, warm tones and natural durability that is uniquely redwood. We fine-mill our redwood lumber close to the source, using every bit of the resource possible – right down to the bark and sawdust that go into making great garden mulch and soil amendments.

There are no landfill issues with redwood either. Redwood is recyclable and entirely biodegradable. That’s all part of why building with redwood goes hand-in-hand with living sustainably.
