Redwood’s source is the Pine tree. The Pinus family has long soft needles arising in pairs, threes or fives and the trees grow up to 25 m in height. We source the majority of our redwood from Norway and the most common native tree in the country is the evergreen Scots Pine (Pinus sylvestris).
The wood is pale brown to red-brown, and used for decorative construction work. It has a dry density of around 480 kg/m3 (varying with growth conditions), green weight ca. 800kg/m3
