Redwood (Sequoia) is an American wood, obtained from some of the world’s tallest trees, many reaching over 270 feet in height and with trunk diameter's of up to 10 feet, but found only in the coastal regions of California. The Redwood trees of California have been harvested since the time of the first Spanish settlers over 400 years ago. It is a highly prized lumber product renowned for several unique qualities not found in other woods--even woods treated with chemicals. Redwood performance characteristics include resistance to decay, insects, shrinking, warping and checking in addition to durability. This means redwood projects age beautifully. Decks, fences and shelters made with redwood simply look better ten, fifteen and twenty years after construction. No other softwood has the rich beauty or the long-lasting performance of redwood heartwood.  

The redwood Boro Sawmill has to offer is reclaimed from an old winery. It is more than 120 years old, is of what is known as ‘first cut’ old growth redwood, meaning that this lumber is among some the first old growth redwood trees cut from the Sequoia forests of California. This high quality lumber disappeared from the market place in the 1950’s and 1960’s. It is dense, all heart, and dry. It is some of the highest quality lumber available today.
