About Humboldt Redwood

Humboldt Redwood Company, LLC (HRC) was formed in July 2008. Certified to the standards of the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®), Humboldt Redwood works to cultivate a lasting legacy of environmentally responsible forestry practices. The company’s Redwood and Douglas-fir timberland operations encompass 327 square miles (209,300 acres). The company has access to another half million acres through a long-term log purchase agreement with Green Diamond Resource Company. Along with its sister company, Allweather Wood, Humboldt Redwood offers a unique mix of dimensional lumber for timber frame, post-and-beam, industrial, commercial, residential, and outdoor living construction projects.

Since its inception, Humboldt Redwood Company has sought to duplicate what has worked well for sister companies, Mendocino Redwood Company, LLC (MRC®) and Mendocino Forest Products Company, LLC (MFP). Like MRC and MFP, Humboldt Redwood’s timberlands and manufacturing operations became FSC certified shortly after the company was formed. FSC is a non-governmental, non-profit organization that promotes the responsible management of the world’s forests. You may view our certification documentation here.
