The quality Humboldt Redwood lumber products you use today to create beautiful outdoor living spaces originated in sustainable redwood forests along the U.S. Pacific coast. There is a 400-mile strip beginning in southern Oregon and ending just south of Monterey, California, which boasts the ideal balance of temperature, topography and precipitation for coast redwood trees to flourish.
In the state of California alone, there are over 1.7 million acres of sustainable redwood forests, managed responsibly to promote the renewable nature of this resource. Nearly 400,000 of these acres are located in public areas like parks and nature reserves. In fact, most of the state’s old-growth redwood trees are permanently preserved. The state’s stringent environmental standards are some of the toughest in the world, ensuring that harvested trees are always replanted for future generations to enjoy.
In addition, a portion of California’s well-managed, sustainable redwood forests are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), one of the most prominent forestry certification standards in the world. You may visit our FSC Certification page to learn more about the high standards Humboldt Redwood Company meets to earn this certification and promote sustainable forestry.
