Redwood is in the family of some of the largest living trees that have ever existed on the planet! Just arrived is some giant Sequoia (Sequoia gigantium) which takes the record for the largest living tree in the World. In the mid 1800′s logging operations started in the forests where these trees grow, leaving behind a path of stumps and logs that were deemed unusable. Today, stumps and logs less than 16′ long are being extracted from these areas. Most of this salvaged wood still produces solid wood that has been aged and slowly dried over a hundred or more years.Our supplier harvests this rare wood and all of the Redwood is all salvaged. Looking forward to making some very special pens from this very special wood.
