Project Description

From posts and rails to fence boards, at The Lumber Baron, we have all your Redwood Fencing Lumber needs covered. We stock the thickest and widest material on the market. ¾” thick and wide fence boards, 1-3/4” thick rails and 3-¾” posts, not the flimsy 5/8” or less material you see at the big box stores. Our extra fence board width (equivalent to 1/2″ or more) means you will need less fence boards to complete your job! Available in five different heartwood grades, we stock anything from your economical Construction Heart, to a Clear All Heart Redwood Fencing Lumber product that will make you the envy of your neighborhood.

While our ethical values don’t line up with common pressure treated post and rail offerings, for the more environmentally conscious customers, we do offer all heart redwood posts and rails. Although more expensive (as of 2/24 approximately +25%), we believe the environmental, longevity, and aesthetic advantages of heartwood redwood over pressure treated lumber are well worth the additional investment.

1×1, 1×2 (rough redwood lumber) fence framing material available in 6′, 8′ and 10′ lengths.
1×6, 1×8 fence boards available in 5′, 6′, and 8′ foot lengths, in all five redwood grades.
2×4 or 2×6 rails, 4×4 posts available in two foot increments from 8’-20’ and in all five redwood grades.

2×6-2×12 kick boards available in two foot increments from 8’-20’ and in all five redwood grades.
Hill and Dale/T&G- if you prefer complete privacy (no gaps) we also carry 1×6 and 1×8 Hill and Dale (aka Tongue and Groove (T&G)) in 5′ and 6′ lengths for good neighbor style fences.

Our Lumber is Sustainable and Green:

Studies prove that when it comes to environmental performance, natural wood is superior to synthetic products in every way. Of all the building products, the lumber we sell has some of the lowest impacts on air and water quality. Its production produces far fewer toxins and green house gases in comparison to composites and cement. While other building materials generate greenhouse gasses, the lumber we stock actually removes greenhouse gasses from the atmosphere. Unlike brick, cement and composite lumber, our lumber is renewable and biodegradable. We source our WRCedar, mahogany and redwood from the most sustainably managed forests in the world.

Wood is the only major building material that is renewable. Lumber producers have been replacing harvested trees so diligently over the last few decades that North American forests have actually grown by 20% since 1970.

Wood is resistant, and in the right conditions, last for a very long time. Several wooden structures through out the world have lasted over a thousand years. In fact, a major part of our business is selling incredible lumber from deconstructed buildings. The ultimate in reducing the consumption of materials, our reclaimed lumber is exquisite and rich in history. Check out our other reclaimed lumber options.

Research proves that “greenness” has a measurable impact on occupants. And not just in residential applications. Used in retail and hospitality, it enhances customer experiences. In healthcare it contributes to faster healing. In workspaces it promotes productivity and boosts morale. As urbanization continues, factoring these benefits into modern design is crucial. Reap the many benefits of wood by incorporating it in your next project.
