Redwood Empire’s two sawmills are ideally located in the middle of the geographic range of the coast redwoods. This provides us with the ability to source the best logs for the right products for our customers. Older and slower growing timber from the southern parts of the range produce tighter grain and tighter knot structure for our higher quality products. In addition to managing over 86,000 acres of our own timberlands in Santa Cruz, San Mateo, Mendocino, Sonoma, and other counties, we also have access to 1.2 million acres of commercial, non-industrial redwood timberlands to source our mills. All of our resources are managed to meet or exceed the high standards of sustainability and resource protection established by the State of California and other public trust agencies. Our foresters and those retained by other landowners from whom we acquire timber work diligently to assure that impacts are minimized and the forests remain productive into the future by employing artificial reforestation where appropriate and other management techniques to improve the forests upon which we depend. Our redwood products and the forests from which they originate are of the highest quality and will endure forever. We are proud to present these to our customers.
