Redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) grows on the coast of California and some are among the tallest trees in the world. Other names for redwood are coast redwood, California redwood, and sequoia.

Exotic Hardwoods & Veneers cut our redwood veneer exclusively from trees that have been salvaged, typically from flood damage, windfall or other non-logging reasons.

Production of redwood lumber and veneer is limited to California but the market is nationwide. The heartwood of redwood varies from light “cherry” red to dark mahogany.  The narrow sapwood is almost white. Typical old-growth redwood is moderately lightweight, moderately strong and stiff, and moderately hard. The wood is easy to work, generally straight grained, and shrinks and swells comparatively little.

The heartwood from old-growth trees has high decay resistance.  The heartwood from second-growth trees generally has low to moderate decay resistance.
