Finished goods are available direct from the mills, as well as through additional company-owned distribution locations in Northern and Southern California, Colorado, Oregon, and Washington. Customer orders ship via truck and rail.

Coast Redwood trees grow along a narrow strip of coastline from southern Oregon to the Big Sur area of Monterey County, California. Long considered an important resource, timberlands in the Redwood region, including Douglas-fir stands, are managed under some of the strictest guidelines in the world. Humboldt Redwood takes it a step further and certifies all its timberlands, manufacturing, and distribution operations to FSC standards. More trees are grown each year than are harvested, ensuring a consistent supply of high-quality Humboldt Redwood lumber products now and into the future.

Redwood timbers

FSC certified Humboldt Redwood timbers are available in nominal 4-inch, 6-inch, and 8-inch dimensions in lengths from 8–20 feet, rough and surfaced four sides (S4S) available in Construction Heart grade.

Increasingly popular as an alternative over cedar timbers, Humboldt Redwood timbers are well-suited for applications including arbors, barns, gazebos, pergolas, and shade structures. Humboldt Redwood timbers have been used commercially in hospitality venues including Jeriko Estate Resort & Winery and ZO Wines Estate. Extensive use of Humboldt Redwood timbers can be found at Sonoma Raceway in Sonoma, California, which hosts annual NASCAR and NHRA races.

Redwood decking

FSC certified Humboldt Redwood decking is available in nominal 2×4, 2×6, and 2×8 dimensions in lengths from 6–20 feet, S4S. Available grades include Superior Heart, Superior Common, Selected Heart/Construction Heart, Clear, B Grade, Heart B, and Heart Clear.

Homeowners and specifiers choose Humboldt Redwood over plastic and composite decking alternatives for its enduring beauty, natural strength, superior versatility, and overall performance as a sustainable building material. The tannins in heartwood grades lend natural resistance to decay and termites. In addition, extensive flame spread testing confirms Redwood’s superior performance under fire exposure. Humboldt Redwood decking may be used without restriction throughout California’s Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) areas.

Douglas-fir timbers

FSC certified Green Douglas-fir timbers from Humboldt Redwood are available rough and S4S.
