  • Humboldt Redwood Timbers Bring Beauty and Strength to Landscape Designs 

    Redwood and Douglas-fir timbers are ideal for many landscaping applications

    SANTA ROSA, CA (September 6, 2019) – Humboldt Redwood, a leading manufacturer and distributor of redwood and Douglas-fir lumber, offers naturally strong, beautiful, and environmentally friendly redwood and Douglas-fir timbers that work for just about every landscaping application imaginable. 

    “The use of redwood or Douglas-fir timbers for landscaping projects can produce dramatic results while lending the natural beauty and strength of wood to any building project,” says Jessica Hewitt, Director of Marketing. “Our redwood timbers are perfect for outdoor shade structures and pergolas. Our Douglas-fir timbers possess the strength and span capability for structural applications like timber frame barns.”

    Redwood Timbers

    Redwood is a unique choice for timbers as it is one of the lightest, yet strongest, North American softwoods, making it ideal for a wide range of applications where large timbers are required. Redwood is a renewable, recyclable, and biodegradable material that provides environmental advantages over alternative building materials.  

    There are many applications where redwood timbers work well, including shade structures, gazebos, pergolas, arbors, benches, and planter boxes. Redwood timbers can be used in building applications where other wood species, particularly Western Red Cedar, have traditionally been used. Even though redwood and cedar have many similarities, there are significant differences that set the two apart. Redwood is a unique, deep red color and it is more than 30 percent stronger than Western Red Cedar. Redwood mills grade to Redwood Inspection Service (RIS) grade rules, which is exclusively authorized by the American Lumber Standard Committee, Inc. (ALSC) to formulate grading rules for redwood lumber. Western Red Cedar producers often have proprietary grades that are difficult to compare from mill-to-mill.

    Douglas-fir Timbers

    Douglas-fir timbers feature excellent span and structural design values for exposed beams, framing, headers, rafters, and timber frame construction projects. They may be used extensively in new construction and remodeling projects in a variety of applications. Douglas-fir timbers readily accept paints and stains extremely well. The American Wood Council recognizes heavy timber construction as fire resistive. Landscape architects and designers may reference Design for Code Acceptance 2: Design of Fire-Resistive Exposed Wood Members, which is available to download free on the American Wood Council website.

    Product Availability

    Redwood timbers from Humboldt Redwood are offered in 4-inch, 6-inch, and 8-inch dimension, in lengths from 8-20 feet. Rough and surfaced four sides (S4S) finish characteristics available.

  • Premium Humboldt Redwood Upper Grades Perfect for Finishing Applications

    Solid sawn uppers considered cream of the crop

    SANTA ROSA, CA (September 6, 2019) – Solid sawn lumber upper grades are the cream of the crop. Featuring limited knots and other natural characteristics, upper grades are often preferred by landscape architects and designers for their unblemished beauty. Humboldt Redwood, the leading manufacturer and distributor of redwood uppers, elaborates.

    “Landscape architects specifying natural wood generally prefer upper grades,” says Jessica Hewitt, Director of Marketing. “The aesthetics generally win out, especially for high-end projects where budgets allow for premium materials.”

    Humboldt Redwood uppers are high value, appearance products for finishing applications including high-end decking, fascia, millwork, siding, and trim.

    Redwood Upper Grades

    Redwood upper grades feature limited knots and other natural characteristics. Heartwood upper grades include Heart Clear and Heart B. Redwood heartwood is naturally resistant to termites and decay and features the dark, red hue that gives redwood its name. Sapwood upper grades include Clear and B Grade. Sapwood grades feature the darker heartwood as well as some of the lighter sapwood. The beauty of redwood sapwood upper grades cannot be underestimated as the variegation in tone can be particularly striking.

    Performance Under Fire Exposure

    The superior performance of redwood under fire exposure has been known for decades. Testing by numerous laboratories in response to strict standards for decking and siding material in California has reaffirmed redwood as a fire safe material. Redwood achieves Class B flame spread in accordance with ASTM E-84, Standard Test Method for Surface Burning Characteristics of Building Materials. Materials achieving Class B flame spread can be used safely and without restriction throughout all areas of California as defined in California Building Code Chapter 7A, Materials and Construction Methods for Exterior Wildfire Exposure.

    Product Availability

    Humboldt Redwood uppers are offered green or dry, surfaced four sides (S4S) or rough, in 1-inch, 2-inch, and 4-inch dimension, in lengths up to 20 feet. Landscape architects and designers specifying projects with redwood uppers are encouraged to contact a Humboldt Redwood dealer. We will work with your designs and specifications to custom produce Humboldt Redwood uppers for your important projects.

  • Humboldt Redwood Decking is the Local Choice for California

    Redwood is one of nature’s best building materials

    SANTA ROSA, CA (September 6, 2019) – Competition in the decking space has never been fiercer. With man-made decking manufacturers popping up seemingly overnight, offering too many product formulations, colors, and sizes to count, deciding which decking to specify or install can be a real challenge. Luckily for landscape architects and designers in California, the best decking material is a local one. Humboldt Redwood, the leading manufacturer and distributor of redwood decking, elaborates.

    “Humboldt Redwood is one of nature’s finest and strongest building materials with shear strength up to five times greater than plastic or composite decking,” explains Jessica Hewitt, Director of Marketing. “But it has always been its natural beauty that has set it apart—nature got it right the first time. The beauty of redwood is legendary.” 

    Redwood Benefits

    Much lighter weight than plastics, composites, or tropical hardwoods, Humboldt Redwood can be easily cut, sawed, drilled, and nailed with regular woodworking tools. Yet for all that lightness, Humboldt Redwood stands up to the elements with natural durability. Properly maintained, a Humboldt Redwood deck could last anywhere from 25-40 years.

    Dimensionally stable, Humboldt Redwood resists warping, cupping, and checking, all while staying comfortable to bare feet even on the hottest, sunniest days. Redwood has also been thoroughly tested and conforms to ASTM E-84, Standard Test Method for Surface Burning Characteristics of Building Materials Class B flame spread. Redwood decking Construction Common and better grades are approved for use in California’s Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) areas without restriction as defined in California Building Code Chapter 7A, Materials and Construction Methods for Exterior Wildfire Exposure.

    Humboldt Redwood products are grown and harvested in a responsible, ethical manner with an eye for long-term sustainability. Redwood logs are harvested at a level consistently below the forests’ annual growth rate and Humboldt Redwood replants trees annually; two methods that ensure Humboldt Redwood will be a renewable resource for years to come. And, unlike plastic and composite decking products, Humboldt Redwood can be recycled throughout its useful life. It is also biodegradable and will not end up in landfills.

    Redwood Deck Grades

    Humboldt Redwood decking is offered in heartwood and sapwood grades. Within the heartwood and sapwood grades there are further designations for architectural and garden grades. Detailed redwood grade specifications may be found in the 2019 Standard Specifications for Grades of California Redwood Lumber published by the Western Wood Products Association (WWPA).

    Heartwood Architectural Grades

    The finest grades of redwood decking containing only heartwood. Featuring limited knots and other natural characteristics, typical grades including Heart Clear and Heart B. May be used on or near soil.

    Sapwood Architectural Grades

    The finest grades of redwood decking containing a mix of heartwood and sapwood. Featuring limited knots and other natural characteristics, typical grades including Clear and B Grade. Specified for above-ground applications only.

    Heartwood Garden Grades

    Economical redwood decking grades containing only heartwood. Featuring knots and other natural characteristics, typical grades include Selected Heart and Construction Heart. May be used on or near soil.

    Sapwood Garden Grades

    Economical redwood decking grades containing a mix of heartwood and sapwood. Featuring knots and other natural characteristics, typical grades include Selected Common and Construction Common. Specified for above-ground applications only.

  • Humboldt Redwood Fencing Keeps Up with Current Trends

    Strength and versatility are key to Redwood fencing maintaining a strong value proposition year-after-year

    SANTA ROSA, CA (September 6, 2019) – The popularity of luxurious outdoor spaces continues to lead to new and exciting design trends, even when it comes to a tried and true staple―the fence. Humboldt Redwood, the leading manufacturer and distributor of redwood fencing, explains why.

    “As property owners continue to look for new and innovative ways to create their own outdoor oasis, they are getting creative and incorporating design elements in unexpected ways,” says Jessica Hewitt, Director of Marketing. “A fence used to just be a fence. With the advent of social media platforms like Pinterest and Houzz, fences are getting lots of upgrades and becoming more integral to the overall aesthetic of outdoor spaces.”

    Fence Trends

    One of the most popular fence trends are fence boards laid out horizontally instead of vertically. Horizontal fences present clean lines and a modern aesthetic, popular with today’s property owners. What doesn’t work in horizontal fences? Sagging fence boards that bow between posts. For that reason, non-structural materials like plastics and composites do not perform well in horizontal fence applications. Only a naturally strong and dimensionally stable material, like Humboldt Redwood, should be used to achieve this popular fence style.

    Another popular trend is fence planters, built as part of the fence itself. For small properties, fence planters are a good use of vertical space, leaving valuable square footage for other purposes. Because Humboldt Redwood is 100% natural and non-toxic, it is completely safe to use for fence planters where vegetables or herbs will be grown.

    Use of non-traditional fencing materials offers another increasingly popular design trend. Corrugated tin, frosted glass, and laser cut metal, among others, can all be used for fence panels framed by either metal or wood posts and rails. With availability in 6-inch, 8-inch, and even larger sizes, Humboldt Redwood posts (and rails) can easily accommodate decorative fence panels constructed from these types of materials.

    All the above-mentioned trends rely on a durable and versatile fence material that can be easily cut, sawed, drilled, or nailed to achieve a unique fence design. Humboldt Redwood fits the bill across the board. In addition, unlike man-made materials, Humboldt Redwood is a renewable resource from well-managed timberlands certified to the standards of the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC® C013133).

    Redwood Fence Grades

    Redwood fencing is typically offered in heartwood and sapwood grades. Durable heartwood grades, including Heart B, Construction Heart, and Merchantable Heart, are naturally resistant to termites and decay. Economical sapwood grades, such as B Grade, Construction Common, and Merchantable Common, are used for above ground applications not on or near the soil. Many property owners elect to use sapwood grades for fence pickets or panels while choosing durable heartwood grades for posts and rails.

    Product Availability

    Humboldt Redwood offers excellent availability of fencing products, including pickets, panels, posts, rails, and accessories. Landscape architects and designers specifying projects with natural wood fencing are encouraged to contact a Humboldt Redwood dealer.

  • Humboldt Redwood Bark and Chips Create Beautiful, Drought-Tolerant Landscapes

    Redwood bark and chips help property owners save water

    SANTA ROSA, CA (September 6, 2019) – While the many benefits and beauty of redwood have long been understood and appreciated for decks and fences, Humboldt Redwood bark and chips for landscaping applications are increasingly popular among property owners interested in creating attractive, drought-tolerant outdoor spaces. With drought conditions common from year-to-year throughout the Western U.S., many property owners are removing water intensive lawns and replacing them with beautiful, environmentally friendly Humboldt Redwood landscaping. Benefits of choosing redwood bark and chips for landscaping projects include:

    • All natural Redwood; no added colors, chemicals, or preservatives
    • Minimally processed
    • Excellent color retention for long-lasting beauty
    • Made in the U.S.A.
    • Sourced from well-managed forests certified to the standards of the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC® C013133)
    • Effective water retention for reduced water loss (evaporation)
    • Stable on hill slopes and flat ground
    • Effective, natural weed barrier

    Humboldt Redwood bark and chips are a byproduct of the lumber manufacturing process. Redwood bark is removed from the logs prior to processing those logs into lumber. Redwood chips are made from scraps and trim ends from the lumber manufacturing process. Because logs are round and lumber is square, scraps and trim ends are unavoidable.

    Redwood bark is shredded into a stringy consistency that holds together extremely well, even in wind-prone locations or on steep hillsides. Redwood chips appear as small square and rectangular shaped pieces that vary in color from red to yellow. Redwood chips perform well on flat landscapes. Humboldt Redwood bark and chips are sold in bulk quantity only.
