ABSTRACT
The article discusses the redwood timber market in California. Changes in availability, pricing and demand have been forced by the drop of redwood timber production attributed to increased regulatory constraints placed on timber harvesting in California. Topics discussed include the dramatic reduction in the quantity of clear grade timber, the use of redwoods for its outdoor durability or attractive appearance, market changes being driven by changes in architectural styles and building applications, and the effect of the housing slump.
