Redwood Lumber Life-cycle Analysis

The USFS Forest Products Lab has a new report, “Cradle-to-Gate Life-Cycle Assessment of Redwood Lumber in the United States

“This report contains a detailed cradle-to-gate life-cycle assessment method including data collection, development of life-cycle inventory, and life-cycle impact assessment for production of redwood lumber in the United States. The results illustrated that redwood lumber production has a very low carbon footprint (37.97 kg CO2e/m3 of lumber) and stores about 18 times more carbon compared with its cradle-to-gate carbon footprint.”
