Project Description

Looking for a less finished look? Our rough (or resawn) redwood lumber is the thickest, nominal material on the market. Available is numerous 2x, 4x, and 6x products, we also stock 8×8. 1x can also be milled on site with a quick turn around time. We’ll even try and match old horizontal resaw appearances!

From the simplest fence, to architectural grade entryways and arbors, our redwood lumber offers superior beauty and longevity at the lowest price. The Lumber Baron is the only lumber yard that allows you to choose from five grades of premium All Heart (no sapwood) redwood lumber. Our redwood lumber is heartwood, not the white colored stuff that quickly rots out or disintegrates which you see at our competitors (you’re buying redwood for a reason right?) We regularly stock 2′ increments from 8′ to 20′, in all five of our grades.

The Lumber Baron is proud to be the premier supplier of redwood lumber in the San Francisco Bay area. With 28 stocked items, 5 different grades, and 46 years of buying experience, you’ll be blown away by the quality and selection at our lumber yard. The appeal of redwood lumber as a building material goes beyond its strength and beauty. Redwood lumber is also remarkably resistant to decay and pests, thanks to the natural tannin in the lumber which creates much of its unique color. The environment is important to us and all of our redwood lumber is environmentally friendly. Therefore, we only sell sustainably harvested new growth redwood or reclaimed old growth redwood.

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.
