Redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) Old-growth salvage logs do not involve harvesting of living old-growth trees.
This treasured material largely comes from previously fallen timber that was not recovered decades ago. Either it was physically too difficult to retrieve or it was not economical to process at the time. Redwood salvage logs may also come from naturally fallen trees due to more recent storm damage, landslides and other natural occurrences.
Limited in availability and highly desirable, ecologically-friendly old growth salvage redwood provides the natural attributes designers and architects seek in wood products. Salvaged redwood features inherent color variation and traits that only ancient material can provide. Careful initial breakdown of these salvaged logs optimize the character of each timber.
