California Redwood has been the choice for outdoor projects for many decades. Redwood’s dimensional stability and its natural-resistance to rot and decay make it a great choice for almost any outdoor project. Contrary to popular belief, there are as many redwoods today as there were when man first began harvesting these wonderful trees. Redwood is the fastest growing North American Softwood and more trees are planted every year than are harvested. Most of the remaining virgin or old growth Redwoods are preserved in the National Parks along highway 101 north of San Francisco.
