Redwood: A Sustainable Building Product

Description: Redwood—one of nature’s longest-lasting, strongest, most beautiful and environmentally-friendly building materials—is commonly used for decking, siding, and timbers because of its natural beauty and resistance to decay. This course covers the sustainable attributes of redwood building products, including a discussion of redwood lumber grades, characteristics, and applications. Also presented are the results of a recent Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) comparing redwood and plastic-composite decking options and information about redwood’s Environmental Product Declaration (EPD).
