REDWOOD

Indigenous to the Pacific United States, redwood trees grow to more than 300 feet tall and 2,500 years old.

Properties & Uses: The best quality redwood comes from the heartwood which is resistant to deterioration
due to sunlight, moisture and insects. It is used to craft outdoor furniture and decorative carvings.
 Redwood burls have a "cluster of eyes" figure. They are rare and valuable.
