Pine (Redwood) is a Softwood. Softwoods come from coniferous trees, (cone bearing) and are sold in standard thickness and widths. Softwood is cheaper than hardwood because the trees grow straight and faster and account for approximately 80% of the world’s timber production.

Here at George Hill Timber, we source our redwood from FSC and PEFC  accredited forests in Sweden, Norway and Russia and we sell it in most lengths and sizes from our our branches throughout the Northwest.
