Redwood decks have been a favorite of Marin County residents for over a hundred years. Redwood is a perfect complement to homes in scenic Mill Valley, Tiburon, Belvedere and Sausalito, where wood homes with hillside decks are very popular. Beautiful vistas with exceptional views offer the perfect environments for redwood decks.
Redwood is the most popular decking choice in Marin County, as it is a very durable wood for outdoor California living. A redwood deck is an outdoor room which becomes a bridge between nature and your home. It has the following natural characteristics:
The popularity of redwood has created a limit to the supply. Due to Clough’s concern about sustainable forest management and our love of trees and the environment, we have begun a business campaign to promote FSC Redwood for our decks and fences by purchasing lumber from HRC (Humboldt Redwood Company – http://www.mrc.com/). HRC is committed to responsibly harvesting redwood trees on a sustainable yield basis. Selectively harvesting (or farming) is a responsible way to manage the forest, wildlife, and production. This process is endorsed and monitored by FSC (Forest Stewardship Council – www.fscus.org). Their mission is to support environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial, and economically viable management of the world’s forests. Please refer to this quick video to see why your purchase matters – http://www.fscus.org/news/index.php?article=763
Please join Clough in our commitment to be great stewards of the land by being mindful of the products we purchase. Along with FSC and HRC, we are creating opportunities to enjoy exquisite wood products while respecting California’s great redwood forests and our local communities.
