The elegant beauty of redwood furniture reflects the beauty of Northern California, home to responsibly managed redwood forestlands. In particular, the forestlands of Mendocino Redwood Company, located about two hours north of the Golden Gate Bridge, are certified to the standards of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
FSC is a non-governmental, non-profit organization established to promote the responsible management of the world’s forests. FSC has developed specific policies for how forests should be managed, and is supported by environmental groups around the world, including the Sierra Club, National Wildlife Federation, Greenpeace, NRDC, Defenders of Wildlife, Earthjustice, and The Wilderness Society.
Knowing your redwood furniture is sourced in a responsible manner is only part of the good news. Redwood is inherently durable and resistant to insects and decay. That means the beautiful redwood furniture sitting on your redwood porch or redwood deck today will continue to look good for many years to come. Whether you decide to paint or stain your redwood furniture, or choose to let it retain its natural cinnamon and creamy yellow hues, your redwood furniture will be a wonderful addition to your backyard living area.
Another benefit of redwood furniture is the way it seamlessly blends with natural surroundings. Redwood furniture of all types from picnic tables and benches to Adirondack chairs and porch swings can be added to garden areas, under shade trees, or beside pools and fish ponds to create a relaxed, natural feel. Furniture made of plastics or other synthetic materials can’t provide the same natural comfort of real redwood.
