042514 MendocinoRedwoodCompanyTour-2423-340x226

On Friday, April 25th approximately 40 students and parents from Terra Linda High School in San Rafael, California toured the mill facilities and forest lands of Mendocino/Humboldt Redwood in Ukiah, California. Students and parents were educated on the topics of sustainable forestryour operations, and why redwood is such a sustainable, beautiful building material. The daylong tour allowed the young people to see a vibrant, North Bay business on a typical workday and to interact with company employees. The students are part of the Marin School of Environmental Leadership Engineering Program whereby they work on practical problems while always keeping environmental sustainability in focus and using creativity as their vehicle for solutions.

The trip was sponsored by Golden State Lumber and Clough Construction. Golden State Lumber has achieved Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) chain-of-custody certification for its operations and offers a wide range of FSC® certified products as well, including Humboldt Redwood lumber. Clough Construction is committed to sustainability and is a member of the Marin Builders Association’s Green Committee.
